THE STANDARD BLUE BOOK — TEXAS 



PREFACE 



In the production of this authoritative work, with the valu- 
able assistance of our most progressive citizens, we have en- 
deavored to maintain high standards in every respect and 
evolve something of real merit and worthy of the commenda- 
tion of all who are interested in the advancement of Texas. 

This volume includes only a portion of the great State of 
Texas. Our next edition will be devoted to other cities and 
sections not included herein. 

The object of the work is three-fold in its nature: To place 
before the people of the Unitied States reliable historical, edu- 
cational, social, biographical, financial, industrial and general 
information which will exert a powerful influence in behalf of 
Texas by making known in a most effective way, her many at- 
tractive advantages, great undeveloped natural resources, in- 
dustrial development and opportunities, remarkable financial 
strength, excellent educational facilities, social refinement and 
splendid type of citizenship. The resultant effect of this will 
inevitably be the enrollment, under the banner of the great 
Lone Star State, of additional desirable citizens, active capital 
and thriving industries, for the upbuilding of our State and the 
increasing of prosperity within our borders. 

To preserve, in the libraries and homes of Texas, a permanent 
record of our progress along various lines and a fair represen- 
tation of the men and women identified with our commercial, 
professional and social activities at this time. .. The great his- 
torical value of this book to the future generations of Texans is 
beyond realization at the present time. 

To make imperishable the splendid records of our patriotic 
men and women who thrust aside their own interests and put 
on the Armor of Service and Sacrifice in the recent great strug- 
gle for the liberation of humanity, and also to create a lasting 
memorial which will perpetuate, in the libraries of the Nation 
and in the historical organizations, public libraries and homes 
of Texas, the names of our noble Texas heroes who made the 
supreme sacrifice of their lives that we may have freedom 



THE STANDARD BLUE BOOK — TEXAS 



The credit for the existence of this book and all the good it 
will accomplish in various ways, at home and abroad, is due to 
those loyal, public-spirited, patriotic Texans shown herein as 
the creators of it. Much praise is due those who by their pat- 
ronage made possible the production of this splendid edition. 

In justice to those having personal representation herein, we 
wish to state that no one was included in this work biographi- 
cally or pictorially at his or her own request, but only because 
of having been favorably passed upon, as to eligibility, by a 
local Selective Advisory Committee. 

THE BIOGRAPHICAL SECTION gives concise, conservative 
data regarding bankers, educators, attorneys, officials, manu- 
facturers, physicians, dentists and other professional and busi- 
ness men and women, constituting a reliable record reflecting 
credit upon our citizenship. 

PHOTO ILLUSTRATIONS of Texans identified with various 
professional, social, musical, educational, civic and commercial 
activities are shown to make better known to the citizens of our 
entire State those entitled to this recognition and also to serve 
as a most effective and dignified introduction of them to the 
people of other States. This feature adds a phase of deep hu- 
man interest not otherwise obtainable. 

THE SOCIAL REGISTER contains a carefully selected list 
of names passed upon favorably, as to eligibility, by thoroughly 
competent local Selective Social Committees. This registration 
is complimentary and above price. 

THE HONOR ROLL of the Military Section perpetuates all 
the available names of those brave Texans who so heroically 
fought and made the supreme sacrifice of their lives, in the re- 
cent great World War. 

In the MILITARY SECTION due recognition is given for the 
valor, heroism, sacrifices and effective service rendered by our 
patriotic men and women. 

To our patrons and the many Chambers of Commerce, Mer- 
chants' Associations, Banks, Officials and others who by their 
effective co-operation assisted in the great success of this un- 
dertaking, we take this means of expressing our grateful ap- 
preciation. THE PUBLISHERS.

TEXAS AND ITS RESOURCES 

Written Esppoially for the Standard Blue Book 

By JAMES Z. GEORGE 
Vice President and General Manager Texas Chamber of Commerce, Dallas 



THE wealth of Texas consists in a large 
part in land. The State ranks first in 
total area and in 1910 fifth in population. 
At the time the census of 1910 was taken 
there were 167,937,720 acres of total land 
area. Of this amount 27,360,666 acres were 
improved farm lands. 

Surface features of the State are: The 
low coastal plains, the more level rolling 
timber country, the plateaus and high plains 
region and the mountain base region of the 
trans-Pecos country. Over the greater part 
of the State the rainfall is sufficient to in- 
sure a successful grain crop without irriga- 
tion. The normal annual precipitation ranges 
from 50 inches along the eastern boundary 
to about 10 inches in the western counties. 
Irrigation is practiced extensively in the 
rice growing counties on and near the Gulf 
of Mexico and in the localities in the valleys 
of the Rio Grande and Pecos Rivers, where 
the annual precipitation is light. 

Population. The population of Texas in 
1909 was 3,896,542, an increase of 27.8 per 
cent from 1899 to 1909. At that rate of in- 
crease the present population would be 4,- 
779,780 ; however, the rate of increase was 
undoubtedly greater on account of the in- 
creased activities in oil fields and industrial 
lines that brought an influx of people from 
other sections of the country. In 1910 75.9 
per cent of the people of the State lived on 
farms or in cities or villages with a popula- 
tion less than 2500. This was a decrease of 7 
per cent as compared to the census of 1900. 
The wage-earners of the State number 70,230 
according to the last census report, and were 
employed by 4588 establishments. 

Railways. Transportation facilities of the 
State are exceptionally good. In 1918 there 
were 15,739 miles of railway track, not 
counting logging roads, tramways, inter- 
urban and other lines not meeting the re- 
quirements of common carriers. At that 
time there were 116 railroad companies op- 
erating in the State. 

Agriculture. Texas was the only State in 
the Union which in 1919 produced more 
than a billion dollars' worth of agricultural 
products. The census of 1919 indicated that 
there were at that time 417,770 farms, 47.4 



per cent of which were operated by owners. 
The average per acre value of farm land at 
that time was $14.53. Texas in 1919 led all 
other States in the production of "King 
Cotton" and ranked third in the production 
of "King Corn." 

Cotton. The 1919 crop is estimated as 
3,064,977 bales, valued at more than $536,- 
374,000. This is more than one-fifth of the 
total estimated production of the United 
States. During the season of 1918 and 1919, 
it is estimated that 1,637,783 bales of cotton 
were sent to Great Britain, France and other 
continental ports from Texas. Texas has the 
world's great cotton port. During Novem- 
ber of 1919, 418,000 bales were shipped from 
this port. 

Com. The 1919 corn crop for the State 
of Texas was 202,800,000 bushels, valued at 
$239,304,000. This was an increase of about 
137,000,000 bushels as compared to the crop 
of 1918. Only two other States had higher 
total yields than this. 

The State ranks third in oats production, 
eighth in winter wheat production and sec- 
ond in broom corn and peanuts. One-twelfth 
of the sweet potatoes in the United States in 
1919 were produced in Texas. Texas leads 
all other States in production of grain sorg- 
hum, producing twice as much as the two 
States with the next largest yield and a little 
less than one-half the total production of the 
United States. Texas also produced more 
than one-seventh of the total rice produced 
in this country; the 1919 crop was 6,998,000 
bushels, valued at $19,500,000. 

Records of the United States Bureau of 
Markets show that shipments of produce 
from Texas to out-of-State markets during 
1919 totaled more than 13,662 car loads. 

Live Stock. Texas in 1919 ranked third in 
aggregate value of live stock. The total 
value of cattle, hogs, sheep, horses and mules 
is estimated as being $572,000,000. The esti- 
mated value of meat animals in the State is 
$348,000,000. Only two States have more 
horses than Texas. There are l,199,000,valued 
at $115,104,000. This State has more mules 
than any State in the Union, the total being 
just a little less than the total mules in Geor- 
gia and Missouri combined. Texas mules

THE STANDARD BLUE BOOK — TEXAS 



have a total value of $109,760,000. The dairy 
cows in this State number 1,138,000, valued 
at $87,626,000. Beef cattle number 4,458,000, 
valued at $186,344,000. Texas has more than 
2,790,000 sheep, valued at $27,621,000. The 
wool clip in 1919 was more than 14,000,000 
pounds. Most of the Texas wool is shipped 
to Eastern markets, shipments being made 
by water. It is estimated that Texas will 
produce in 1920 more than 1,575,000 pounds 
of mohair, worth at least $945,000. It is 
estimated that Texas produced in 1919 more 
than one-half of the mohair produced in the 
United States. In 1919 in Texas there were 
2,356,000 hogs, valued at $45,942,000. 

Industrial. The 1914 Census of Manufac- 
turers indicated that at that time there were 
5084 manufacturing establishments in the 
State, employing more than 78,850 people. 
The total capital invested was $283,545,000, 
and total value of products was $361,279,000. 

In manufacturing may be found one of the 
largest items of the State's wealth. 

Banks. There are 1708 banks in the State, 
with total resources of more than $1,414,- 
920,080. In 1880 there were only thirteen 
National banks, with total capital of but 
$1,300,000; today there are 552, with total 
resources of $965,855,000. On February 28, 
1920, there were 964 State banks, with total 
resources of $411,165,080. In 1906, there 
were only 136 such banks, with capital stock 
of little more than $4,875,000. There are also 
in the State 192 private banks, with resources 
approximately $37,900,000. 

Oil. It has been estimated that more than 
$600,000,000 has been invested in oil in Cen- 
tral Texas alone and that $200,000,000 has 
been invested in this industry in the coastal 
fields, a total of $800,000,000. In 1889 the 
production of oil in the State was only 148 
barrels. In 1919 it was 96,000,000 barrels. 
The total production of the State to date is 
more than 417,000,000 barrels. During 1919 
there were 3347 wells in North Texas alone. 
More than one-fourth of the oil refined in 
the United States is refined in Texas. In 
January, 1920, there were operating and un- 
der construction 100 refineries. It has been 
estimated that the sum paid to Texas land 
owners for oil leases in the new fields is 
more than $1,000,000,000. 

Lumber. The most recent figures show 
that Texas has 427 saw mills operating on 
a year 'round basis and that, in addition, 
there are 314 smaller mills operating through 



a portion of each year. The lumber output 
in 1918 was 1,350,000 board feet; the grad- 
ual decrease during the three-year period 
being caused primarily by war conditions 
and war-time restrictions on building and 
not by any scarcity of standing timber. It 
is estimated that the cut for 1919 will run 
1,500,000,000 board feet. It is also estimated 
that Texas has about 25,000,000,000 feet of 
merchantable pine timber and 10,000,000,000 
feet of mercantile hardwood timber. About 
23,000 persons are employed in the lumber 
industry. The value of lumber manufactur- 
ed in Texas annually is over $40,00,000. The 
capital invested in this industry is computed 
to be between $30,000,000 and $35,000,000; 
65 to 70 per cent of the lumber manufactur- 
ed in Texas is used by Texas citizens. ; the 
remainder is shipped northward, and for the 
most part finds markets in Kansas, Okla- 
homa, Iowa, Illinois and adjacent States. A 
relatively small amount of lumber is being 
shipped abroad from the ports of Orange and 
Port Arthur. The citizens of Texas use 
fully as much lumber as is manufactured in 
the State, and an export supply is available 
because the Panhandle and other parts of 
West Texas have quite a lot of fir lumber 
shipped in from the Pacific coast and North- 
west. Practically all the timber in Texas 
suitable for production of lumber is found 
in the eastern part of the State. The lum- 
ber industry in Texas ranks first in number 
of wage-earners, second in number of estab- 
lishments and fourth in value of products, 
according to the United States Census of 
Manufacturers for 1914. Texas has about 
25,000,000 acres of land covered by tree 
growth, or more than any other State. 

Coal and Lignite. There are at this time 
eleven coal mines and thirty-seven lignite 
mines operating in the State. The daily out- 
put from the 17 coal shafts is estimated as 
being 1000 tons, very little of which goes to 
the general public, as most of it is used by 
the railroads. The 37 lignite mines operate 
through 37 shafts. The general supply of 
coal is taken as 8,000,000,000 tons, and the 
total workable area being about 8200 square 
miles, with additional area of about 5300 
square miles in which available seams may be 
found. There are about 60,000 square miles 
in which lignite abounds. This is nearly one- 
half the total known lignite area in the 
United States. The general supply of lignite 
is taken as 30,000,000,000 tons. There has 
been a remarkable growth in the lignite in- 
dustry during the past few years. In 1904 



THE STANDARD BLUE BOOK — TEXAS 



11 



the output was estimated as little more than 
421,500 tons. In 1913 it was 1,144,515 tons. 
Lignite is used for the most part as fuel un- 
der stationary boilers, but about 20 per cent 
of the production goes for making gas to be 
sent to gas engines. It is also used in hollow 
tile works for imparting porosity to the tile 
as well as to add strength. 

Clay Products. In 1913 the State was ninth 
in production of common brick and sixth in 
value, eighth in production of front brick 
and sixth in value, and eleventh in sewer 
pipe production. In 1916 it was estimated 
that the value of clay products produced in 
this State had reached $50,000,000 or more. 

Sulphur. Texas and Louisiana together 
produce 99 per cent of the sulphur produced 
in the United States. The bulk of that pro- 
duced in Texas is shipped by water to East- 
'ern fertilizer manufacturing concerns. The 
principal deposits in Texas are found in salt 
dunes of the Gulf coast plains. Freeport is 
the greatest sulphur district of the South, 
reports from the United States Tariff Com- 
mission, published in 1919, indicate that 
there are two companies in Texas and one in 
Louisiana. Up until January 1, 1919, this 
commission reported that two companies 
produced practically all of the sulphur in 
this country, one company in Texas and the 
other in Louisiana, since then, however, a 
third large producing company has begun 
operating in Texas. 

Silica. There are two companies in Texas 
producing silica suitable for manufacturing 
glass. One of these companies is at Santa 
Anna and the other at Athens. The sand 
produced at Santa Anna compares very fa- 
vorably with the very best sand produced in 
the Oklahoma-Texas territory. The deposit 
at Santa Anna is described by Professor J. 
A. Udden, of the University of Texas, as be- 
ing very fine in texture and almost soft 
enough to be termed pack sand. In many 
places it is very pure. Sand for the manu- 
facture of bottle glass, according to Profes- 
sor Udden, can probably be obtained in our 



southern coast country from the drifting 
sand dunes. As the geologic mapping of 
various counties progresses it is expected 
that deposits of glass sand will be found in 
such counties as Decatur, Weatherford, 
Hood, Erath, Eastland, Comanche, Callahan, 
Brown, Coleman, Mills and possibly Lam- 
pasas. There are at this time two companies 
in this State producing window glass and one 
bottle glass. 

Iron Ore. Valuable iron ore deposits are 
found in east and northeast Texas. These 
deposits are of excellent character, the ore 
containing from 55 to 57 per cent metallic 
ore. The area that contains workable ore 
beds is about 1200 square miles, the principal 
deposits being found in eleven counties. In 
a bulletin published by the University of 
Texas, in 1916, it is estimated that up to that 
time about $3,000,000 worth of pig iron 
had been produced in J;he State. At the 
present time there are ten firms in the State 
interested in iron ore properties. Of this 
number only one is known to have produced 
in 1919, shipping considerable quantities of 
ore to Alabama. It is not possible to make 
a conservative estimate of the amount of 
good grade brown ore to be had, but it is 
said to be between 600,000,000 to 1,000,000,- 
000 tons. 

Quicksilver. Principal deposits of 
quicksilver in this State are to be found 
in Brewster County. Real possibilities in 
developing this mineral have hardly been 
touched. The ore has been found in an 
area of about thirty miles from east to 
v^'est and twenty miles from north to 
south. In 1917 10,791 flasks, valued at 
$1,136,000, were produced in Texas. 

Cement. All the materials essential to 
the manufacture of Portland cement are 
found in the regions around Dallas, Sher- 
man and San Antonio. There are eight 
cement companies in Texas putting out 
large production. Some of the highest 
grade cement in the world is produced in 
Texas. Opportunity for further devel- 
opment of this industry is very attractive, 
especially when the large appropriations 
that have been made for road develop- 
ment and the enormous amount of con- 
struction work being J.one in the State 
are taken into consideration.

Services Rendered by the Hon. John Henry Kirby 

AS LUMBER ADMINISTRATOR IN THE WORLD WAR 



f\N April 27, 1917, Mr. Kirby received a tele- 
^ gram from Mr. B. M. Baruch, at Washing- 
ton, containing the wish of the President that 
he should serve as a member of the Raw Mate- 
rials Committee of the Counsel of National De- 
fense. He answered that he would be glad to 
render any service in his power, and would 
leave at once, arriving in Washington the fol- 
lowing Monday morning. He closed his desk 
and left for Washington and served through- 
out the period when the nation was mobilizing 
all industries as an effective war measure. He 
served during the period when the lumber in- 
dustry, acting under the direction of the Lum- 
ber Committee of the Counsel of National De- 
fense, of which Mr. Kirby was a member, ren- 
dered such conspicuous and exceptional service 
in building cantonments and other plants nec- 
essary for the successful conduct of the war. 

In May, 1917, he was unanimously chosen 
President of the National Lumber Manufactur- 
ers Association, composed of all the lumber 
manufacturing associations in the United States, 
regardless of species of wood production in 
which they are engaged. He was chosen be- 
cause of his power of organization and capaci- 
ty for administration. Under his leadership the 
war work of these industries was conducted in 
a most orderly way and in a manner in the 
highest degree satisfactory and acceptable to 
the Government. 

In March, 1918, he was requested by Chair- 
man Edward N. Hurley, of the United States 
Shipping Board, to accept the duties of Lum- 
ber Administrator for the South for the pur- 
pose of furnishing to the Emergency Fleet Cor- 
poration, engaged in building boats for the 
United States Shipping Board, timbers and 
other material of wood so much needed in 
that construction. At this time German fright- 
fulness through the cruel and diabolical use of 
the submarine was sinking the shipping of all 
Nations more rapidly than the tonnage could 
be produced and there was great anxiety in 
the United States Shipping Board as well as in 
all America. Every energy, resource and power 
of this Government was then being devoted to 
a shipbuilding program. Thousands of con- 
tracts for wooden ships had been made both on 
the Atlantic and Pacific, as well as on the Gulf, 



and shipbiiilders were complaining that the ma- 
terial was not reaching them expeditiously. In 
this crisis Mr. Hurley turned to Mr. Kirby with 
request that he perform this very patriotic duty. 
Mr. Kirby, who was then in Washington, 
promptly accepted and immediately returned to 
the South for the purpose of entering upon the 
duties of the position. He returned to his home 
in Houston for one day and then went direct 
to New Orleans where, on March 21st, he took 
charge of the timber section of the Emergency 
Fleet Corporation. He called to his assistance 
twenty-one practical lumbermen from all of the 
lumber-producing States of the South, who 
joined him in New Orleans and without pay 
served the government with such efficiency 
that within five days from the time he took 
charge of this office every requirement of every 
shipyard on the Atlantic and Gulf Coast, from 
New Hampshire to Texas, was filled or the ma- 
terial required was in transit. 

Mr. Kirby remained continuously on the job 
in New Orleans from March 21st until the fol- 
lowing August and during that period the great 
wood ship building program of the Emergency 
Fleet Corporation was not halted a minute for 
lack of timber supplies, and at the conclusion 
of his services there was sufficient timber in 
the government yards at points where required 
to build all the ships under contract. 

Having finished his tasks there was no need 
that he should serve longer and on August 23, 
Mr. Charles M. Schwab, Director General of 
the Emergency Fleet Corporation, wrote him 
from Philadelphia thanking him for his ser- 
vices in these words: 

"I am writing this letter to express to you 
my sincere thanks and appreciation of the splen- 
did and faithful services which you rendered 
to us as Lumber Administrator. I am quite 
sure the work which you did was based on 
purely patriotic motives and was, no doubt, at 
a considerable sacrifice of your own interests. 
We are deeply grateful for your untiring ef- 
forts which were of the greatest help to us 
when most needed. Again thanking you and 
with kindest regards, I am 

Very truly yours, 

CHARLES M. SCHWAB, 

Director General.

HISTORIETTE OF TEXAS 

BY THE HISTORY CLUB OF SAN ANTONIO, 
Mrs. J. K. Beretta, President 



THE history of Texas is unique in many 
ways. First, we are the only State 
which has been under the dominion of 
six flags; second, we are the only State 
which has been an independent Repub- 
lic; third, we are the only State which 
really has a flag of its own ; fourth, only 
one other State besides Texas (excepting 
the original colonies) came into the 
Union without passing the probation 
stage of being a territory. 

The first settlement in Texas was made 
by LaSalle, in the name of France, early 
in 1685, on the Gulf coast, being called 
Fort St. Louis. Two years later the stout- 
hearted LaSalle was slain by traitorous 
hands. 

During this time Spain became much 
exercised over the news that France had 
laid hands upon what Spain considered 
her territory, for she claimed everything 
bordering on the Gulf of Mexico. She 
sent Captain DeLeon with his Spanish 
soldiers to oust the French from Fort St. 
Louis. They, however, found that the 
colonists, left without a leader, had near- 
ly all been massacred and the fort had 
been abandoned. DeLeon, taking pos- 
session in the name of Spain, it is said, 
called the country Texas because of the 
neighboring tribe of friendly Indians — 
the word Texas, in their tongue, mean- 
ing friends. Others claim that our name 
came from the Tehas Indians. 

The Spaniards established themselves 
in Texas and their Franciscan monks 
founded our wonderful Missions, the 
most famous being the Alamo, in 1744; 
San Jose, begun in 1718, and Concepcion, 
all on the San Antonio River. The two 
latter were centers of activity for nearly 
a century. 

Being a part of the State of Coahuila, 
Mexico, Texas passed under the domin- 
ion of Mexico in 1821, when Mexico es- 
tablished its independence from Spain. 



American colonists filtered in grad- 
ually and finally became numerous and 
important. Mexico, becoming alarmed 
at the increasing numbers of Americans, 
resolved to crush their rising power. 
Many battles followed, including the 
massacre of the Alamo, on March 6th, 
1836, and culminating with the victory 
of the Americans, under General Sam 
Houston, in the Battle of San Jacinto, on 
April 21st, 1836. 

Shortly afterward Texas formally de- 
clared her independence and establish- 
ed herself as a republic. Mexico refused 
to acknowledge the independence of 
Texas and when, in 1845, the Republic 
entered the United States as the State of 
Texas, war between the United States 
and Mexico resulted. 

Texas progressed rapidly until the 
War Between the States, when it joined 
the Southern Confederacy in 1861. 

Unlike in the other Southern States, 
the Federal armies did not penetrate the 
interior and Texas thus escaped the rav- 
ages and horrors of war, although it did 
suffer, as did its sister States, during the 
period of reconstruction after the war. 

Those days of trouble and humiliation 
under military rule passed with the re- 
tirement of Governor Davis and the 
election of Governor Coke in 1874, the 
free choice of the people of Texas. Since 
that time Texas has become the Em- 
pire State of the South, greater in pop- 
ulation and wealth than any of the 
other Southern States. 

To Texas: 

Ever-generous Mother of Man, whether 
under the fleur-de-lis of France, the 
golden and bloody banner of Spain, the 
eagle and cactus of Mexico, the lone star 
of the Texas Republic, the Stars and Bars 
of the Confederacy, or the Stars and 
Stripes of the Union — glorious in your 
past history, may you be even greater in 
the future — Texas, fair Texas!

J. 0. MACK 

HOUSTON 



Mr. J. O. Mack is President and General Manager of the Mack 
Manufacturing Company, Macks Street, Houston, Texas. He is a 
business man of note and an inventor of national reputation. 

For the past ten years Mr. Mack has been an oil operator in the gulf 
coast fields, during which time he was President of the Packard Oil 
Company and Perry Oil Company of Edgerly, Louisiana, the Vinton 
Development Company and Gulf Coast Oil Company of Vinton, Louis- 
iana, General Manager of the Merrimac Oil Company of Sour Lake, 
Texas. 

He has been directly and indirectly connected with many of the 
best oil operators in the Louisiana and Texas fields, where he could 
study operation at first hand. The large manufacturing plant of which 
he is the head, is devoting most of its capacity to manufacturing pat- 
ented articles developed by him during that time. 

Mr. Mack spent several months of the last year of the war in Wash- 
ington, D. C. and New York City, at the request of the Government, 
where he developed an invention to be used on the western front. It 
had the endorsement of the most prominent authorities in this country. 

Among the authorities who passed on and recommended its adop- 
tion by the War Department were some of the leading engineers of 
this country, together with some sixty United States Senators and 
Congressmen. 

Mr. Mack has letters from Secretary-of-War Baker, William G. 
McAdoo, former Secretary of the United States, Vice President and 
General Manager of the Hudson-Manhattan Railway who was the 
engineer in charge, under Mr. McAdoo, when they built the Hudson 
River Tunnel ; he also built the tunnel at Paris, France. Marshall 
Foch, General John J. Pershing, Theodore Roosevelt, Thomas A. Edi- 
son, R. A. Bachman, Vice President and General Manager of the Thos. 
A. Edison Company, and the French, English and Italian ambassadors 
wrote Mr, Mack personally that they were anxious to see it tried out 
on the Huns. Mr. Mack met practically all of these men personally 
and they discussed his patent with him freely at different times and 
endorsed it to the War Department.

MANUFACTURING 

BY THE MANUFACTURERS ASSOCIATION OF SAN ANTONIO. 



INDUSTRIALLY, Southwest Texas is 
now demanding the attention of the 
Nation's most enterprising men. This is 
chiefly because of its vast undeveloped 
resources and the practically unlimited 
opportunities its great territory offers. 

ARTICLES MANUFACTURED IN 
SOUTHWEST TEXAS. 

In San Antonio alone, over thirteen 
hundred different articles are included 
in the output of its three hundred fac- 
tories, which distribute more than five 
million tons of wares over an unusually 
large territory. Southwest Texas is de- 
pendent on no one class of industry for 
its support, but manufactures an unus- 
ually diversified line of products. Some 
of the principal articles produced are: 
Brick, packing house products, dairy 
products, foundry and machine shop 
products, automobiles, trucks, tractors, 
candy, waterproofing materials, belt 
dressing, jewelry, soft drinks, cottonseed 
products, soap, cigars, saddlery, chili 
products, mattresses, vinegar, gasoline 
and other crude oil products, disinfect- 
ants, pickles, flour, marble yard prod- 
ucts, celluloid wares, books, plaster 
products, planing mill products, optical 
goods, artificial teeth, toilet prepara- 
tions, drugs, bakery products, art glass, 
macaroni and similar foods, packing 
boxes, cement, electricity and artificial 
gas, tanks, tents and awnings, engrav- 
ings, art goods, hollow tile, crushed rock, 
brooms, asphalt and an endless variety 
of other high-grade wares. 

FUEL. 

Oil and lignite are the principle fuels 
used for manufacturing purposes. Wa- 
terpower is also developed to a limited 
extent. Electricity for industrial pur- 
poses is furnished at reasonable rates in 
the larger cities, as also is artificial gas, 
while the greatest lignite deposits in the 
United States extend throughout the re- 
gion. Coal of a higher grade is also pro- 
duced here and is available for those 
concerns which need it. Natural gas is 
going to waste in many localities at the 
rate of millions of cubic feet per day, 
awaiting the man who can harness and 
deliver it at reasonable rates to the cities 
for industrial usage. 



MARKET. 

Distribution of Southwest Texas man- 
ufactured products reaches all parts of 
the United States, and while an enor- 
mous developed Texas territory also fur- 
nishes a ready market for these goods, 
an excellent foreign trade has recently 
been developed with Mexico, South and 
Central America, West Indies, Cuba, 
Italy, France, Great Britain, and Ger- 
many with the assistance of the Export 
Trade Bureau of the San Antonio Manu- 
facturers' Association, which organiza- 
tion is at all times ready to assist pros- 
pective Texas shippers. 

FACTORIES NEEDED. 

It is apparent that there is room for a 
number of new factories in this fast de- 
veloping section, such as knitting mills, 
textile mills, hosiery mills, cooperage 
works, furniture factories, glove and 
shoe factories, fruit and vegetable pre- 
serving plants, fertilizer, floor tile con- 
cerns, tanneries, pottery and china 
works, and a number of others. 

All factories desiring to locate here 
can rely on receiving hearty practical 
co-operation from the rapidly increasmg 
buying public of the great Southwest. 

RAW MATERIALS. 

Southwest Texas is particularly fortu- 
nate in possessing a bountiful supply of 
many high-grade materials. Great quan- 
tities of the following abound: Glass 
sand, kaolin, Fuller's earth, limestone, 
cotton, fire clay, marble, crude oil, build- 
ing stone, brick and pottery clays, as- 
phalt, trap rock, also some quicksilver, 
molybdenum and novaculite. An unlim- 
ited supply of artesian water is another 
asset which has attracted a number of 
industries to this section. 

TRANSPORTATION. 

Transportation facilities are adequate 
and satisfactory, being taken care of by 
fourteen railroads. In Port Aransas, 
Southwest Texas possesses a rapidly de- 
veloping ocean outlet of its own, not to 
mention the excellent available connec- 
tion facilities with the ports of Galves- 
ton, Houston, New Orleans, Beaumont, 
and Texas City, and the border points of 
entry at Laredo and Eagle Pass.

The Part of the Texas Doctors in the War 

BY T. T. JACKSON, M. D., SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS 
President Elect State Medical Association of Texas 



To tell what the Texas doctors have 
done in this war is an impossible 
task. It would be to ask of the wind 
that blew through the camps and can- 
tonments of our army while all slept 
but the surgeon and the sufferer; it 
would be to make a witness of the 
mother and father of the boy who has 
been brought back to them from the 
gates of death ; to make a witness of the 
man who bears under his blouse the 
wound of death ; and more, it would be 
to hear the stories told by the souls of 
soldiers who sleep under the poppies 
of France — stories we shall never hear. 
I can not do this, but there are some 
facts and some truths ready at hand 
that may be told. 

There was commissioned from Texas 
the following medical personnel : 

Army 825 

Navy 50 

National Guard 52 

Total 927 

Added to this should be 142 more rec- 
ommended for commission at the time 
of the signing of the armistice. There 
are about 5000 active practitioners in 
the State. Texas actually contribut- 
ed to the war one doctor for 
every 5.2 men in active medical 
practice. This is a greater contribution 
than that of any other profession, ex- 
cept that of nursing. Late in March of 
1918, the officers of the State Medical 
Association of Texas made a preliminary 
classification of the doctors of the State, 
as to their availability for military ser- 
vice. Later, the Texas Committee of 
the Committee of American Physicians 
for Medical Preparedness, under the 
leadership of Dr. W. B. Russ, began a 
survey of the profession and secured the 
detail of Lt. Col. Holman Taylor for 
this work. After this the Council of 
National Defense, Medical Section, took 
over the work of the aforesaid commit- 
tee. At the urgent solicitation of the 
Council of National Defense, Medical 
Section, a more complete survey and 



classification of the doctors of Texas 
was begun in May by the acting Secre- 
tary, Dr. I. C. Chase, in connection with 
the State Committee of the Council of 
National Defense, Medical Section. This 
was an enormous task thrown upon the 
central office without any extra com- 
pensation to the employees of the As- 
sociation. Biographical data of great 
value concerning almost every doctor 
in the State was accumulated and an 
up-to-date directory was compiled. As 
this work of final classification was 
about to begin and the results be for- 
warded to Washington, on August 15th, 
Maj. Franklin Martin wired that the 
central committee of the Council of Na- 
tional Defense, Medical Section, had 
been reorganized and would, from 
Washington, begin a new classification, 
and urged that complete questionaires 
from the State, secured on new blanks, 
be forwarded to Washington within a 
week. Blanks for this purpose were 
mailed from Washington and a new or- 
ganization of county advisers were ap- 
pointed by Washington authorities. This 
resulted in the organization of the "Vol- 
unteer Medical Service Corps," with a 
new executive committee of the Texas 
Governing Board of the Volunteer Medi- 
cal Service Corps." This new Commit- 
tee began new classifications, but had 
hardly started its work when the armis- 
tice was signed. Its work was not com- 
plete at the time the Volunteer Medical 
Service Corps was suspended in April. 

This was the fourth classification un- 
dertaken in Texas during the war. Al- 
though these classifications, for want of 
a central unified plan of action, seemed 
abortive, they doubtless awakened a 
great deal of interest and lead indirect- 
ly to an increase in applications for 
commissions. The amount of work vol- 
untarily contributed by the district su- 
pervisors, councilors, executive commit- 
tee and county secretaries, in these sur- 
veys, can hardly, and probably never 
will, be appreciated by the mass of the 
profession.

In connection with the draft mach- 
inery the records show that almost all 
available doctors took some part of the 
burden upon their shoulders, in addition 
to other sacrifices that they were mak- 
ing and labor that they were doing. The 
records of the Texas Boards in sending 
clean and able men to the front ties 
Connecticut for second place in the low 
number of rejections, Texas having 5.12 
per cent; Connecticut, 5.11 per cent, 
while Maryland hardly exceeded Texas 
and Connecticut, her percentage being 
4.94. 

There were during this war, 600 med- 
ical men on district and local boards, 
and 150 on medical advisory boards, to- 
taling 750. This, together with those 
commissioned in the Army, Navy and 
National Guard, 927, and 142 who had 
been recommended for commission at 
the time of the signing of the armistice, 
makes a total of 1,819, exclusive of the 
Volunteer Medical Service Corps. This 
large number of physicians serving on 
boards, and those actively engaged in 
war during hostilities, it will be remem- 
bered, was out of about 5,000 active 
practitioners of the state. 

Everyone who made the sacrifice he 
was called upon to make deserves dis- 
tinction. Rank played but a paltry part 
in this great melting pot. Some one, 
some time, will tell the undying story 
of the bravery and chivalry of our sons 
on the Western front. 

Without comparison or criticism and 
with a heart full of gratitude and ap- 
preciation, I desire to say that, what- 
ever else may be said, or whatever oth- 
er viewpoint may be taken concerning 
the part the Texas doctors played dur- 
ing this war, it must be conceded that 
they paid in full, and in every particu- 
lar, their debt to their country, to hu- 
manity and to liberty. Paid even to 
their pound of flesh, paid with their 
talents, their blood, their bones and 
their bodies; and greater, or more than 
this, none could have done — and yet, 
they paid it frankly, willingly and 
cheerfully. 

And while you did only the thing ex- 
pected of you, you followed in the foot- 
steps of your forebears, and the exam- 
ples of your forefathers, who, when the 
tyranny of Mexico required our blood 



and treasure to procure and perpetuate 
freedom ; when the question of secession 
was to be settled by the arbitrament of 
arms on an hundred battle fields, laid 
their all on the altar of their country. 
Your action was none the less heroic. 

Not the least soul satisfying thought 
that warms the heart of every doctor 
in the contemplation of this unparal- 
leled tragedy and unparalleled sacrifice 
is the realization that almost if not every 
physician in Texas did his or her part 
to the fullest. And it is pleasing and 
gratifying that there is an imperishable 
record showing that many who did not 
and could not for many reasons put on 
the uniform, did their full duty for hu- 
manity and freedom. Those who gave 
their lives, health, talents and time, to 
their country, serving in the very fore- 
front of the battle lines; those who 
spent gruelling hours over wrecked and 
torn humanity on operating tables in 
advanced hospitals; those serving in 
base and post hospitals, and canton- 
ments in this country, camp infirmaries 
and all, in whatsoever position they 
served, too much cannot be said in 
praise, and no State can be more proud 
of her sons. 

I do not undertake to determine by 
what occult means our government se- 
lected physicians for this duty or that, 
or why or how the rang or status was 
fixed ; who was sent overseas and who 
was left, or who was placed at the 
very forefront of responsible duty or 
kept in the rear; but this I do assert, 
the best was neither taken nor left, 
given higher or lower rank. And I, 
here and now desire to pay tribute to 
the doctor who, forsaking all else, clung 
to his country in her hour of peril, 
regardless of pay, emolument or rank, 
or where, what or how he served. 
Among them there must be no distinc- 
tion. If our government was short of 
surgeons in France, if our colleagues 
were overworked, if merical men were 
needed, the responsibility cannot be 
laid at the door of the Texas surgeons, 
for each of you know the constant cry 
from the beginning to the end from the 
Texas doctors was, "Here am I, send 
me." If you were marooned, forgot- 
ten, overlooked and left behind, the re- 
sponsibility was not ours. And thank 
God every Texas surgeon did his duty 



44 



THE STANDARD BLUE BOOK — TEXAS 



and his full duty, regardless of perso- 
nal equation and the refrain was "Place 
me where I can do the most good." 

It is with the keenest pleasure that 
I now turn to the other side of the pic- 
ture and am able to say with pride and 
greatest pleasure, that while those in 
uniform were doing their full part, the 
civil surgeon was doing his and doing 
more. Too much cannot be said of and 
too much credit can not be given to the 
unfortunate surgeon who had to stay 
at home and still do his duty. The draft 
machinery. Red Cross, the increased 
work incidental to the departure of 
many surgeons, gave opportunity to 
those who stayed at home to pay and 
pay in full the debt that they owed 
their country, and it is unnecessary to 
say again that it was paid to the fullest. 
Especially should a wreath be laid at 
the feet of the older practitioners of 
medicine, God bless them, who had par- 
tially retired from practice when the 
war came, but who again picked up the 
thread of practice and devoted them- 
selves assiduously to the work that had 
previously been done by younger men. 
I knovv^ phys.c.ans over 65 years of ag;e 
who during the war did not decline a 
single call ; and I feel that more than 
this, no man has done. With examples 
like these, is it to be wondered that our 
younger men filled full the measure of 
their duty? 

And truly the doctor to whom my 
heart goes out the most, is the unfor- 
tunate surgeon whom circumstances and 
conditions prevented from going to the 
front when his soul cried out to join the 
innumerable caravan that was march- 
ing on to victory or to death. Texas 



had many of these and they carried a 
burden and did a duty absolutely sub- 
lime in its nature and stupendous in its 
character; and the services they ren- 
dered to our State Association, to our 
institutions of learning and to many 
semi-public and private enterprises, of 
which the world could know nothing, 
were second to no duty that any son of 
the State has done. 

I cannot refrain from here mention- 
ing the one man who stands out particu- 
larly prominent in this kind of service: 
the man who has carried the burden of 
our Journal and assisted in the affairs 
of our State Association, as no other 
man could have done. I refer to Dr. 
Ira Carleton Chase. When the war was 
apparently tumbling our house down 
around our ears, when it looked as 
though suspension and disorganization 
stared us in the face, it was he who 
stepped into the breach and gave us his 
time and his talent to a degree that 
could not have been expected of any 
one. 

These things and more have been 
done by the doctors of Texas. We have 
done our duty, done it willingly and 
cheerfully, not boastfully, or arrogantly; 
yet we do boast of one man, the valiant 
man of our profession whom we loaned 
to the line to command the most feared 
organization on earth — a regiment of 
Texas Infantry. I refer to Lieutenant 
Colonel Holman Taylor, who led a reg- 
iment of our boys through the fiery fur- 
nace. And now his duty done, he lays 
down his title and rank of Commission 
and proudly assumes that of Doctor of 
Medicine and becomes again our be- 
loved and efficient Secretary.

The Texas Public Health Association 

Written Especially for the Standard Blue Book 



THE Texas Public Health Association, 
* with state offices at 616 Littlefield 
Building, Austin, is a society incorpor- 
ated under the laws of Texas and formed 
by a number of prominent Texas citizens 
who are interested in health — especially 
the fight against tuberculosis. 

The principal aims of the association 
are: To disseminate knowledge -con- 
cerning the causes and methods of pre- 
vention of communicable diseases, in- 
cluding tuberculosis; investigation of the 
prevalence of such diseases in Texas, ana 
the collecting and publishing of useful 
information; securing of proper legisla- 
tion to promote the relief and suppres- 
sion of such diseases; co-operation with 
other health organizations; promoting 
active public health work; and encoui- 
agement of adequate provision for con- 
sumptives and those suffering from other 
preventable diseases, by establishment 
of sanatoria, dispensaries, and otherwise. 

The activities of the association are 
financed chiefly through the sale of 
Christmas Seals and the gifts of friends 
interested in public health. All the funds 
received are used for health work, the 
association's share going to aid Texans 
in Texas. 

The officers of the association for 1920 
are: Dr. Z. T. Scott, Austin, predident; 
Dr. Elva A. Wright, Houston, first vice 
president; J. A. Allison, Fort Worth, 
second vice president; J. B. Rawlings, 
Fort Worth, secretary; H. A. Wroe, Aus-

[Bracy, assistant to the executive and 
Texas Modern Health Crusade Director; 
George F. Granger, field secretary; Miss 
Pearl N. Hyer, R. N., public health 
nurse ; Wilbur A. Fischer, publicity sec- 
retary; R. C. Ortega, Mexican secretary; 
and F. R. Barnwell, lecturer to Negroes. 

Some of the work done by the associa- 
tion in 1919 includes the distribution of 
1,171,942 pieces of health literature over 
the state: 431 lectures given to 68,506 
people by members of the staff; 326 
school talks made before 60,227 school 
children ; field workers conferred with 
134,017 Texas people on health. 

The association carried the Modern 
Health Crusade to 416,000 school chil- 
dren in 135 counties of the state; the 
public health nurse examined 2,827 chil- 
dven in 60 Texas cities and talked to 
17,000 school children; health surveys 
were made in four Texas cities; the 
Mexican secretary lectured to 4,904 of 
his people, and formed health societies; 
the lecturer to Negroes traveled 8,149 
miles, addressed 30,654 school children 
and talked with 55,541 Negroes on 
health. 

Other important work of the associa- 
tion for 1919 was: Inspection of sana- 
toria ; employment of publicity secretary 
to assist in public health education ; pub- 
lishing a monthly health magazine ; 
sending a Mexican health exhibit, the 
only one of its kind in the United States, 
among the Mexican people; assistance 
of local anti-tuberculosis societies and 
co-operation with other health organiza- 
tions; health speakers sent to summer 
normal institutes; sent a field worker 
into 11 army camps where he lectured to 
18,025 soldiers on health ; and furnished 
a speaker on health for the tour of the 
West Texas Chamber of Commerce.

AUSTIN 



Written Especially tor tlie Standard Blue Book 

By THE AUSTIN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE 



The natural beauty of the country- 
surrounding Austin was responsible for 
this particular point in Texas being se- 
lected for the location of the State Cap- 
itol. 

Austin is the hub for a territory of 
265,000 square miles, within which live 
nearly five million people. It is there- 
fore befitting that this city with the en- 
vironment which nature has given it, 
should be the leader of all the cities of 
Texas in art and education. 

The State University, which is located 
in Austin, now has more than 4,000 
students.. 

The Texas School for the Deaf, the 
Texas School for the Blind, the Texas 
Wesleyan College, the Presbyterian 
Theological Seminary, the School for 
Defectives. 

Surrounding the city there is rich ag- 
ricultural land. The major portion of 
this soil is black prairie land, all of 
which is under cultivation and is pro- 
ducing abundant crops of cotton, corn 
and hay. There is also a lesser portion 
of the county covered by the Colorado 
River Valley, practically every acre of 
which is under cultivation. This soil 
produces large crops of cotton, corn, 
oats, vegetables and fruits. 

For centuries the Colorado river has 
been cutting its way through the moun- 
tains until it has left high cliffs and 
peaks which offer remarkable scenery 
for the pedestrian or autoist. Auto 
roads traverse the hills and valleys of 
this section. White perch, bass, buf- 
falo trout and catfish are found in large 
quantities in the mountain streams and 
in Lake Austin, which is nearly 28 miles 
long and offers a source of attractive 
outings all the year around. 

The City of Austin has the commis- 
sion form of Government, which has 
proven most successful ever since its 
adoption in 1909. The aggregate wealth 
of the city is estimated at $75,000,- 
000.00, and the bonded debt is $2,545,- 
000.00. The directory census of 1920 
gives this city a population of 47,409. 



The Bank Clearings for Austin in 
1919 were $213,728,048.82, and the 
Postoffice receipts for 1919 were 
$249,773.84. 

Many parks are scattered about the 
city, their grassy slopes dotted with live 
oaks ages old and mountain laurel 
grows in profusion. Among these are 
Wooldridge Park, Pease Park and City 
Park at Lake Austin. 

The area of the city is 16 square 
miles, and the altitude ranges from 650 
to 900 feet. There are several attrac- 
tively parked additions to the city, 
among which are Hyde Park, Aldridge 
Place, Enfield and Travis Heights. There 
are 185 miles of streets, 21 miles of 
which are paved. There are 66 miles of 
sewer mains and 63 miles of gas mains. 

Every church denomination is repre- 
sented in Austin. Y. M. C. A. and Y. 
W. C. A. buildings contribute to the 
building of character. The golf links 
at the Country Club are unexcelled. Be- 
ing kept in perfect condition they are 
well known throughout the country. The 
transportation service, to every section 
of the city, with over 21 miles of street 
railway and the reduced fare to school 
children, does much to assist in home 
building. 

The drainage of Austin is perfect and 
complete. The city is located on hills, 
and the many miles of streets, paved 
with bitulithic and brick, drain perfect- 
ly. All paved streets are washed and 
swept, and the unpaved streets are 
sprinkled. 

Main line railroads to Austin are the 
Missouri, Kansas & Texas Railway; In- 
ternational Northern Railway and South- 
ern Pacific Railway. 

There are many cities which are 
greater commercial towns or more act- 
ive industrial centers, but there is no 
city which excels Austin as a place in 
v/hich to live. Its people and its insti- 
tutions, as well as the natural environ- 
ment surrounding the city, make it a 
place where character stands above ev- 
erything and where the best to be found 
in life can be obtained.

BEAUMONT 



Is located in Jefferson County, Texas, 
on the Neches river, connected with the 
Gulf of Mexico with a 26-foot tide level 
canal, and is the only fresh water har- 
bor on the Gulf; a sheltered port free 
from tropical storms. Through Beau- 
mont and the Panama Canal commerce 
will find an easy and short route to the 
western coast of South America, a coun- 
try rich in resources and heretofore in- 
accessible to the United States except 
through San Francisco or around the 
Horn. It is, by reason of the location 
and concentration of railroads, the cen- 
ter of great natural wealth in Timber, 
Oil and Minerals. 

Beaumont's proximity to the Gulf tem- 
pers the summer sun, and it is cooler 
than in the central Mississippi valley, a 
southeast breeze from salt water pre- 
vails in the hottest months. In the 
winter the temperature rarely goes be- 
low the freezing point, and the days 
are warm and balmy. 

It has a population of 43,000. 

Assessed property valuation $35,000,- 
000. 

Tax rate, $1.57. 

Bonded indebtedness, $2,485,900.00. 

Accumulated sinking fund, $590,215. 

Municipally owned and operated wa- 
ter supply system furnishing 3,000,000 
gallons of pure and wholesome water 
daily. Maximum capacity of the plant, 
12,000 gallons every twenty-four hours. 

Thoroughly modern wharf and dock 
system, municipally owned and oper- 
ated. 

Five brick fire stations, all well equip- 
ped and the most efficient fire depart- 
ment of any city its size in the United 
States. 

Thirty-five miles of paved and shelled 
streets. 

Ninety miles of concrete sidewalks. 



Thirty miles of main sewers. 

Thirty miles of gas mains. 

A well organized and efficient health 
department, with health board, bacte- 
riologist, sanitary inspectors, meat, food, 
drug and dairy inspection, city garbage 
collection and incinerating plant. 

Beaumont is the great jobbing and 
distributing center for Southeast Texas 
and Southwest Louisiana. It enjoys the 
advantage of low inbound rail freight 
rates, due to actual water competition. 

Beaumont is the center of the largest 
rice producing area in the United States, 
and one of the fastest-growing fields of 
diversified agriculture in the Southwest. 
It is in the rain belt with an average of 
48.88 inches of rainfall annually, well 
distributed through the year. Ideal cli- 
mate and fertile soil permit farming the 
year around, with a harvest possible ev- 
ery month. The home of the South Tex- 
as State Fair, the second largest agri- 
cultural fair in Texas, is at Beaumont. 
The headquarters of the Southern Rice 
Growers' Association aire at Beaumont. 

Beaumont is one of the centers of the 
great Southwestern oil fields. Here is 
located the far-famed Spindle Top Field, 
the site of the famous "Lucas Gusher," 
the discovery well. Beaumont, through 
her oil pipe lines, is at the mouth of 
nearly every producing oil field in the 
Southwest. Four big controlling line 
companies and eight lines center here. 
It is also the chief city of the extensive 
Yellow Pine, Cypress and Hardwood 
Lumber manufacturing territory of 
Southeast Texas and Southwest Louisi- 
ana. There are 135 saw mills within 
Beaumont's trade territory, with a daily 
output of over 10,000,000 feet. With 
crude oil and water transported coke 
and coal, fuel is cheap and great in- 
dustries draw an abundant supply of 
labor.

Texas Central between Houston and Aus- 
tin, hence is worthy of more than ordi- 
nary attention. The history of the Lone 
Star State is so firmly bound to Wash- 
ington County and Brenham that the 
names of these run through almost every 
chronicle or narrative of early days. In 
those earlier days man liked the fertile 
fields that surrounded Brenham and 
chose it for a fitting place to live. From 
a pioneer village of the Texas Republic 
days Brenham has grown into a modern 
little city, with every advantage, in edu- 
cation and environment, that is found in 
larger places. 

Brenham was attractive to those good 
old Southern families who belong to the 
group of the Cavaliers. The ease and 
grace with which they builded this little 
city upon the chosen hills is still evident. 
Then came a thrifty group of immigrants 
— men and women of splendid stock, who 
had chosen America as their home, and 
with these and those who later came 
from other States Brenham gradually de- 
veloped, until today, while largely de- 
pending upon the farms for its prosperity 
and growth, it boasts of important manu- 
factories. 

There is no better farm land than that 
which surrounds Brenham, and especial- 
ly that found only a short distance away 
in the valley of the Brazos. But so va- 
ried are the soil conditions about Bren- 
ham that every character of crop is 
grown, and the forests are filled with th^^ 
choicest woods. Stock and poultry rais- 
ing have made great strides in recent 
years and fruit raising comes in for an 
important place. The largest Japanese 
persimmon orchard in Texas is located 
near Brenham. 

The principal manufactories of the 
city are : Cotton mills, cotton seed oil 
mill, iron foundries, cotton compresses, 
gas plant, machine shops, bottling works, 
tin shops, farm implement manufactory, 
peanut butter manufactory, creamery, 



products, saddles and harness and mar- 
ble and granite finishing works. The 
city has two daily and two weekly news- 
papers. 

The city public schools are affiliated, 
with substantial credits, with all South- 
ern colleges and many others of the Na- 
tion. Blinn College and the Sacred Heart 
convent are located here, with valuable 
properties, school buildings and dormi- 
tories. There are churches of all the 
well-known denominations, with splen- 
did edifices. 

Brenham's four wholesale grocery 
firms supply a large trade territory. 
The retail stores are the pride of the city. 
They are modern in every respect. This 
city offers splendid opportunities in ev- 
ery line of trade. The banks, all with 
substantial capitals, reserves and depos- 
its, reflect the prosperity of the com- 
munity. They show total deposits of 
$2,000,000.00. The taxable valuation 
of Washington County is $12,000,000 
while that of the City of Brenham is 
over $3,000,000. 

Oil developments have attracted con- 
siderable attention to Washington Coun- 
ty, and with wells in the field near the 
city which are producing a small quan- 
tity of oil and deep tests which soon will 
be made, the petroleum possibilities of 
the county promise to be thoroughly ex- 
ploited. 

Bonds have been sold for the expendi- 
ture of $1,500,000 on roads of the coun- 
ty, one of the principal projects of which 
will be completing the Washington 
County portion of the Houston-Austin 
highway. Wonderful possibilities of 
growth are opening up. New houses are 
being erected and new businesses are 
constantly being started. Brenham is in 
the real road of progress. Its property 
values have increased tremendously and 
with the new incentive which it is receiv- 
ing toward material growth it offers op- 
portunities in almost every line of en- 
deavor and appeals, as a place to selegt 
for a real home town, like few other 
places in the State.

tral Texas. 

Corsicana has the distinction of hav- 
ing the first Oil Field discovered west of 
of the Mississippi river. This field was 
first brought in in 1896 and has been 
producing ever since, in fact the first 
wells brought in are still producing. The 
daily production of the Corsicana field 
is now 1,500 barrels of high gravity oil. 
The present production all comes from 
shallow wells, but there are now nine 
deep tests going down and twenty more 
proposed. This field has never had a 
deep test for oil and as all of the other 
oil fields of this State and Oklahoma 
have been shallow fields before the 
deep oil was found, the operations now 
in progress and those to follow will un- 
doubtedly find the deeper sands and 
the daily production will be increased 
many thousand times. Corsicana is the 
home of the Magnolia Petroleum Com- 
pany, which company owns many pro- 
ducing wells in this field and has a big 
refinery located here. The output of 
this refinery is several million dollars 
annually. In addition the Magnolia Pe- 
troleum Company has three eight-inch 
pipe lines running through this city and 
county, two from the Kansas, Oklahoma 
and North Texas fields to the Gulf and 
one from the Ranger field to the Gulf. 
One of their largest pumping stations 
is located here. Two other refining com-

HOUSTON 

Written ^Especially for the Standard Blue Bool< 

By THE HOUSTON CHAMBER OF COMMERCE 



IIOUSTON has every condition to justify 
her ambition to become a world port 
with a tremendous volume of ocean 
trade. 

Houston has a deep water port, with a 
ship channel, reaching from her munici- 
pal wharves to the Gulf of Mexico, serv- 
ing as the highway of ocean commerce. 

How this channel was developed from 
an unnavigable "bayou" to its present 
depth and width, with ocean-going craft 
sailing its waters to and from Houston, 
forms a romantic chapter in the commun- 
ity life of this city. 

Fifty years ago work was first begun : 
It required six years to complete the first 
unit. The work was continued with vigor 
and zeal, however, with the realization 
that success would crown the effort to 
make Houston a world port. 

This arm of the Gulf now extends to 
Houston's very doors. At the head oi 
navigation in the city limits is a "turning 
basin" excavated from mother earth and 
filled with tidewater from the sea, 25 
miles distant. It is here that ships turn 
around and head for the sea. 

On the sides of the channel at the turn- 
ing basin are docks, wharves, warehouses 
and railway trackage and other facilities 
for loading and unloading cargoes. All 
these facilities are owned solely by the 
City of Houston. Although there are 18 
main line railways radiating in every di- 
rection from Houston, not one foot of the 
chanrel frontage nor a mile of railway 
terminal facilities are owned by any pri- 
vate corporation. The City of Houston 
owns not only its docks and wharves, but 
its belt line railway, which connects all 
docks, wharves and industrial plants on 
the channel with the 18 main line rail- 
ways. It will be impossible, therefore, 
for the water front of this magnificent 
harbor to ever be under the control of 
private corporations. 

This tremendous development work 
has been done at a cost of more than 
seven and a half million dollars, but it is 
regarded as the best investment Houston 
ever made. 



The channel was opened to shipping in 
1914. The shipping growth has been so 
rapid that facilities for handling cargoes 
are now becoming severely taxed and the 
city government is devising ways and 
means of extending and enlarging those 
facilities. 

We are now shipping Texas cotton 
from our wharves to the markets of Eng- 
land and other Nations of the old world. 
We have steamship service between 
Houston and Philadelphia, with the posi- 
tive assurance that a new line between 
Houston and New York will be establish- 
ed at an early date. Boston is knocking 
for admission with a steamship line in 
order to reach the markets of the So lo- 
west with New England manufactu-.d 
goods and to secure Texas cotton tid 
wool for the New England mills. We 
have established regular service betv>^e(!n 
Houston and the ports of Tampico, V >ra 
Cruz, Tuxpam and other Mexican ports. 
We are beginning a trade development 
with Mexico that promises to reach tre- 
mendous proportions. 

The port of Houston, with its unparal- 
leled facilities for loading and unloading 
ship cargoes, is absolutely free to com- 
merce. No charge whatever is made 
against vessels entering this port. It is 
the only free port in the South. 

Houston's population has more than 
doubled during the past ten years. Her 
building growth has been phenomenal, 
yet no other American city presents 
greater opportunity for successful indus- 
tries. There are now being built here a 
dozen large office buildings, and there is 
urgent need for double that number. All 
lines of wholesale and retail business are 
enjoying the greatest prosperity in their 
history. Houston offers advantages to 
all who are seeking opportunity to come 
here and utilize the marvelous resources 
afforded for winning success. We ex- 
tend a welcome to the world, and the 
Houston Chamber of Commerce is main- 
tained for the purpose of lending assist- 
ance to all responsible parties who desire 
information or assistance in entering this 
field of unlimited promise.

PORT ARTHUR 

Written Especiitlly for the Standard Blue Book 

By THE PORT ARTHUR CHAMBER OF COMMERCE 



AMONG the numerous ports which 
have been developed on the Gulf 
coast during the past tw^o decades, Port 
Arthur easily takes pre-eminence in 
point of commodity values. In point of 
tonnage movement it is in advance of 
any Gulf port. This seeming incompati- 
bility is due to the fact that while other 
Gulf ports are heavy exporters of cotton, 
which has a high value per ton, the bulk 
of Port Arthur's water movement of 
freight is in oil, which has not so high a 
value per ton. 

As a vessel-owning port. Port Arthur 
ranks first among all ports south of Bal- 
timore, and at the present time over 
125,000 tons of American shipping carry 
the name of Port Arthur as their home 
port. Statistics recently compiled show 
that a total of 35,000 seamen come into 
this port each year. 

The chief industry of the city, oil re- 
fining, was commenced with the discov- 
ery of oil on Spindle Top, early in 1901. 
Since then,while only two refining plants 
have been built in the city proper, the 
two concerns have each year enlarged 
their plants by an amount which would 
easily be counted for another refinery. 
Oil refining and shipping, with a consid- 
erable amount of general cargo move- 
ment, makes up the principal business of 
the city, and the population, shown by 
the Federal census to be between 22,000 
and 23,000, is in reality something over 
25,000, when the people living at the re- 
fineries and who are outside the city 
limits are counted. 

Port Arthur has the most advanced 
system of public schools in the State and 
adaptation of the Gary system to local 
conditions, which provides a maximum 
of education in all branches, academic, 
vocational and ethical, combined with 
thorough attention to the physical devel- 
opment of the students. This year's 
scholastic enrollment is between 4500 
and 5000, and the course of instruction 
includes everything from arithmetic to 
Latin, and from military designing to 
automobile repairing. Special classes in 
chemistry of oil and engineering are con- 



ducted for those wishing to study along 
night schools, in which adults are given 
special instruction and training in any 
branches they wish, is high in the hun- 
dreds. 

Public improvement work has includ- 
ed construction of an excellent system of 
asphalt and shell paved streets, sewer, 
drainage and storm protection systems, 
garbage incinerator plant, water supply, 
abattoir and numerous other public fa- 
cilities, owned by the municipality. 

The city has been made the play- 
ground for a large section of eastern 
Texas and western Louisiana by the con- 
struction of a pleasure pier with an area 
of ten acres, extending half a mile into 
Lake Sabine in front of the city. 

At the water front the Gulf Refining 
Company and the Texas Company own 
private docks, and the Gulf Company's 
docks are constructed along a private 
harbor or basin excavated by the com- 
pany. The port has a total of 11,000 
lineal feet of docks, part of concrete and 
part of timber construction ; a grain ele- 
vator with storage capacity of 500,000 
and loading capacity of 30,000 bushels 
per hour, working four spouts. Ware- 
houses line 5,000 lineal feet of the 
wharves. 

Port Arthur Canal and Dock Com- 
pany, operating under State charter, own 
terminals with 7400 lineal feet of 
wharves. The Gulf Company has 2,200 
feet and the Texas Company 200 feet of 
wharves. Railroad lines transfer from 
rail to ship, and vice versa. Electrically 
operated ten-ton boom on lumber dock. 
Mechanical handling facilities include 
cranes, magnets, hoists, conveyors, etc. 
Texas Company wharves equipped with 
traveling conveyors with spirals to hood 
for loading case oil, capacity 25,000 cases 
per day. 

Dry docking facilities : At present, four 
repair plants. Plant under construction 
will handle 3500 tons. Coal bunkering: 
Basin Supply Company has derrick barge 
of 500 tons capacity; will load at rate of 
75 tons per hour.

CAN ANTONIO is the greatest metropo- 
lis of the Southwest. The population 
is estimated at 160,000. The area of the 
city is 36 square miles or 23,040 acres. 
There are 650 miles of streets, 336 of 
which are paved. 

There are 73 schools in the city, 34 
public schools, 3 high schools and 36 pri- 
vate schools. The total value of school 
property is about $5,000,000. More than 
31,477 pupils are registered in the public 
schools. 

There are 69 churches in the city, all 
denominations being represented. 

San Antonio has often been called the 
"City of Beautiful Homes." It is esti- 
mated that there are 32,000 homes in th9 
city, 50 per cent of which are occupied 
by their owners. Architecture of eveiy 
period and nearly every style is repre- 
sented, some of the homes being among 
the most costly in this part of the coun- 
try. 

Building operations in 1918 totaled 
$3,754,054, the largest figures in the last 
12 years, and showing a 71 per cent in- 
crease over 1917. 

The city records show an assessed 
valuation of $132,284,847, real estate be- 
ing $96,614,407 and the personal prop- 
erty $35,670,440. The bonded indebted- 
ness is only $8,238,500, at an average in- 
terest rate of 5 per cent. 

San Antonio has a number of the most 
modernly appointed and best equipped 
hotels in the South, among them being 
the Gunter, St. Anthony, the Lanier, the 
Randall Hotel, Argyle, Maverick, Hutch- 
ins, Garden, Crockett, Imperial, Majes- 
tic, Travelers and Hotel Arthur, 

Postal receipts for 1918 were $1,145,- 
326. In 1919, the next largest year, the 
receipts were $925,945.82.

San Antonio has 24 banks — National, 
State and private. The combined capital 
is more than $8,000,000. Deposits aver- 
age $45,000,000. Cash on hand averages 
$16,000,000 and loans $36,000,000. 

The last surveys of the industries 
show that the factories employ approxi- 
mately 7000 persons, and the value of 
the output for 1918 was $30,712,876. The 
pay roll is in the neighorhood of $6,- 
000,000 annually. 

Oil and natural gas have been discov- 
ered near San Antonio, which will result 
in great development in the industrial 
line on account of the cheap fuel that 
will be supplied from these fields. 

Six railroad lines, upon which ninety- 
one trains enter and leave the city daily, 
connect San Antonio with the North, 
East, South and West, Forty-six of these 
trains are passenger, and the freight 
trains average forty-five daily. 

An electric street car system, with 92 
miles of track, operated throughout the 
entire city. There are 235 miles of sew- 
ers, 206 miles of sanitary and 29 miles 
of storm sewers. 

The water supply of San Antonio is 
one of the finest in the United States, and 
experts say that it is sufficient to supply 
a city of 500,000, The water is drawn 
from 14 artesian wells, ranging in depth 
from 800 to 1600 feet, which supply 
about 50,000,000 gallons daily. Most of 
the hotels and manufacturing plants and 
many of the irrigated gardens in and 
near the city have their own wells, flow- 
ing an additional 50,000,000 gallons of 
water daily. This water is clear and 
cold, with but little minerals in solu- 
tion. 

The growth of San Antonio having 
sprung mainly from the service it has

rendered as a distributing point, devel- 
oping its wholesale business to about 
$150,000,000 value annually, it becomes 
necessary to consider the trade territory 
served by San Antonio. 

This trade territory covers 63 counties 
and contains 68,015 square miles, or 
43,529,600 acres. This is an area larger 
by 3850 square miles than the combined 
areas of Ohio, Massachusetts, New Jer- 
sey, Rhode Island, Connecticut and Dela- 
ware. The population of this territory 
is nearly 1,000,000. This population 
has been supported and this wealth pro- 
duced on less than 15 per cent develop- 
ment of the agricultural lands in the area 
indicated. It is estimated that in this 
territory there are between 20,000,000 
and 25,000,000 acres of good agricul- 
tural land fit for cultivation, but not yet 
in cultivation. 

The total value of the agricultural 
products and live stock produced in this 
area in 1918, according to official fig- 
ures of the State Comptroller of Texas, 
was over $200,000,000. The cotton raised 
in the section in 1916 was estimated by 
the State experts at 700,000 bales, with 
a value of $150,000,000. 

The climate of San Antonio is favor- 
able to manufacturing for the following 
reasons: The mildness of the climate 
makes a saving in the fuel bill necessary 
to the heating of plants. The length of 
the days in the winter is greater than in 
Northern latitudes, hence there is a Rav- 
ing in the lighting costs. The climate br- 
ing favorable to human life, gives greater 
efficiency and a generally happier and 



more contented condition of the workers. 
The favorable climate, together with the 
rich soil and relatively reasonable prices 
of land in and near the city, makes it 
possible for workmen to grow vegetables 
winter and summer at their homes, and 
thereby make those homes wholly or 
partly self-sustaining. Money thus saved 
is money made, and the workman at the 
same wage makes more money under 
those conditions. 

The average temperature for the year 
1918 was 60 degrees, the lowest in the 
average being 47 degrees in January and 
the highest 85 degrees in July. The rel - 
tive humidity was only 60.6 degrees. Last 
year there were 290 days when the sun 
shone, this being slightly less than 1917, 
when 322 days were counted. The

fall since 1871 follows:

BY THE RETAIL MERCHANTS ASSOCIATION, INC. 



TAYLOR is a city of about 10,000 popu- 
lation, located in the heart of the fa- 
mous "black land" belt of Texas, where 
exhaustion of land is unknown. There 
are farms around this city that have 
been in cultivation formore than 75 years 
and, without being fertilized in any man- 
ner, are today producing better crops 
than they did 75 years ago. This land is 
the most fertile within the confines of the 
United States of America and will pro- 
duce any crop that is planted and prop- 
erly worked, though cotton, corn, oats 
and sorghum are the staple crops. 

The International and Great Northern 
Railway and the Missouri, Kansas and 
Texas Railway junction in Taylor, giv- 
ing short quick-haul to every direction of 
the compass and to every market reached 
by rail. Likewise giving short-haul to 
the seaports at Houston and Galveston. 

Taylor is the main trading center be- 
tween Dallas and Houston on the M., K, 
and T. and between San Antonio and Pal- 
estine on the I. and G. N., which gives it 
a trade territory that can not be sur- 
passed. 

Taylor is the best paved city in Texas, 
by which we mean that it has more 
square miles of paving per capita than 
any other city in the State, the total be- 
ing about 21 lineal miles of paved streets. 

Located in Taylor is the largest deep 
water well in the State. This well is 
about 3400 feet deep and flows about 
3,000,000 gallons of pure water within 



every day of the year. This well is own- 
ed by the Taylor Water Company, of 
which Mr. A. J. Zilker of Austin, Texas, 
is the president. 

About seven miles from Taylor is the 
famous oil field at Thrall. This field is 
about six years old now and, while not a 
big oil field, it has some very good pump- 
ing wells that produce a very fine grade 
of crude oil. 

The City of Taylor has a commission 
form of government. The people elect 
five commissioners at large, who in turn 
employ a city manager, who is charged 
with the executive affairs of the city. 

Taylor has good schools and good 
churches, clubs, lodges and other simi- 
lar associations usual to a place of this 
size. 

Farming is the chief industry, but 
there are several manufacturing con- 
cerns in the city, among which may be 
mentioned eight cotton gins, three oil 
mills, machine shops, a large mattress 
factory and two ice factories. 

Mercantile lines and professional 
callings are well represented by able 
men, who have worked together for the 
building of this magnificent little city. 

Taylor has four strong, progressive 
banks, that continue to show increasing 
deposits each year. 

Those contemplating a change of resi- 
dence for social, business or health rea- 
sons should investigate the City of 
Taylor.

THE town of Temple was founded in 
1881. The population today is ap- 
proximately 17,000 — and "Every One a 
Live One." Located 128 miles south of 
Fort Worth and 212 miles north of Gal- 
veston and is served by two railroads, 
namely, the M, K. and T. and the Santa 
Fe. An interurban railroad between 
Temple and Belton, with its lines run- 
ning through the main residence sections 
of both cities. The two great Southwest- 
ern trunk line railroads through the city 
with 32 passenger trains daily. The 
freight tonnage outbound from Temple 
in 1919 was far greater than that of any 
previous year, and likewise with the in- 
bound. The railroad revenue here far 
exceeds the million-dollar mark. 

Temple has seven and one-half miles 
of paved streets, 120 miles of concrete 
sidewalks and macadam roads leading 
in all directions from the city. Temple 
is also one of the principal points on the 
King of Trails and the Meridian High- 
ways running from Canada to the Gulf 
of Mexico. Every residence street is bor- 
dered with large, beautiful trees, mak- 
ing Temple a veritable park. 

Temple has flour mills, planing mills,

sheet metal works, grist and feed mill, 
ice cream factories, creameries, bakeries 
and marble and granite works. Temple 
is also a center for the wholesale grocery 
houses, three of the largest in the State 
being represented here. 

The excellent system of public school? 
in Temple, managed and conducted ac- 
cording to the latest improved methods, 
is sufficient evidence that Temple is no 
secondary city as far as educational ad- 
vantages are concerned. A high school 
building costing over $100,000.00, and 
seven two-story brick ward buildings. 



Temple churches, representing all the 
leading denominations, are noted for 
their size and architectural beauty. 

There are three of the largest and 
most up-to-date surgical institutions in 
the South located here, namely: Temple 
Sanitarium, the King's Daughters Hos- 
pital and the Santa Fe Hospital. The 
Santa Fe Hospital is used by this entire 
division of the G. C. and S. Fe Railroad. 

Temple owns her own waterworks 
plant, valued at over half a million dol- 
lars, with an unlimited water supply de- 
livered to the people 98 per cent pure, 
through a perfect filtration plant; also 
owns her own sewerage system, valued 
at more than $150,000.00. 

Temple is noted for her health condi- 
tions, pure water and good climate, hav- 
ing an elevation of 703 feet above the sea 
level and being the highest point of the 
Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe and the 
Missouri, Kansas and Texas Railways. 

Temple's growth has been steady and 
substantial, and is due to the enterprise 
and push of its business men and citizens. 

Temple is surrounded by some of the 
best cotton, grain, general farming and 
stock lands in Central Texas. The cli- 
mate of this section is unsurpassed. The 
spring and fall months are exceedingly 
delightful. Temple is considered one of 
the most healthful cities in the Middle 
West. 

Organization and co-operation are the 
essential elements of success in the af- 
fairs of men and cities. The rapid 
growth and development of the City of 
Temple during the past few years is due 
directly to the fact that its citizens are 
united and co-operate in all matters per- 
taining to the public welfare. It is a 
progressive city that appeals to ambitirus 
and progressive people. 

Temple is an ideal city for factory lo- 
cations, and we offer many inducements. 
Temple has numerous other advantages 
that make life worth living, and to the 
public we extend a hearty invitation to 
visit our city.

THE STANDARD BLUE BOOK — TEXAS 



WACO 



Written Especially for the Standard Blue Book 
BY THE WACO CHAMBER OF COMMERCE 



MESTLING on the banks of the Brazos 
River, amidst fertile fields, the City 
of Waco, originally called "Huaco," links 
the peaceful and picturesque scenes of 
today with the history and traditions of 
the Huaco Indians who in ages past es- 
tablished their village and council house 
where the silvery waters of the Bosque 
join those of the Brazos on its journey 
to the Gulf of Mexico. With a popula- 
tion of over 50,000 hospitable citizens, 
who have expended money and time to 
make this little city a desirable place in 
which to live; with beautiful homes and 
miles of paved streets lined with thou- 
sands of beautiful shade trees; with a 
system of public parks unexcelled in any 
city of its size in the United States ; with 
fine schools, colleges and churches, 
Waco is most aptly called "A City With 
a Soul." 

There are ten banks in Waco, all do- 
ing a good business. Business conditions 
generally are most prosperous. 

Waco is located in the very heart of 
the great cotton producing area of Texas, 
the greatest cotton State in the world, 
and many of the industries of the city 
are naturally akin to cotton and its pro- 
ducts. During the cotton season, hun- 
dreds of thousands of bales of cotton are 
marketed in and through Waco; cotton 
gins dot the county; an immense cotton 
compress is located in the city, and our 
cotton oil mills manufacture the by-pro- 
ducts of the cotton seed. The agricul- 
tural interests of this section are not con- 
fined to cotton. Practically all the crops 
common to the South-Central part of the 
United States are grown in Central Tex- 
as. Stock raising is an important indus- 
try. Near Waco are several of the larg- 
est fine stock farms in the State, princi- 
pal among which are the famous Good 
Man Valley Farm and Wildayr Farm, 
both with registered Hereford cattle, 
Shropshire sheep, etc. Waco has a Cham- 
ber of Agriculture, devoted to the argi- 
cultural interests of this section, which 
has recently brought in from Nebraska 
over one hundred head of the finest hogs 



that could be procured, distributing them 
on the various farms with a view of rais- 
ing the standard of hogs produced here. 
A licensed cotton classer, gain inspector, 
cattle inspector and several county agri- 
cultural and demonstration agents are 
kept constantly employed, looking after 
the interests of our agricultural sections. 

Waco is the home of a number of man- 
ufacturing establishments. Candies, the 
famous "Circle A" ginger ale, pickles, 
rubber tires, overalls and many other 
commodities are manufactured here and 
shipped to all parts of the civilized 
world. Several wholesale houses are lo- 
cated here. We have the largest whole- 
sale grocery house in the entire State of 
Texas, two large wholesale drug houses, 
wholesale dry goods houses and various 
other wholesale concerns. A million 
dollar cotton mill is now under construc- 
tion and will be in operation within a 
very short time. A large cordage and 
twine mill will probably begin operation 
soon. 

Probably no other city in Texas en- 
joys better transportation facilities than 
does Waco, being served by the Santa 
Fe., M., K. and T., Cotton Belt, I. and 
G. N., S. A. and A. P., Southern Pacific 
and interurban connections with Dallas, 
Fort Worth, Corsicana, Sherman and 
Denison. Another interurban line is now 
being extended south to Temple, Belton 
and southwestern points. We have di- 
rect service into the great oil fields of 
the western part of the State and can 
serve that territory by freight or express 
in the shortest possible time. Two com- 
panies take care of the express from 
Waco, the Texas Electric Company and 
American Railway Express Company. 

Waco is the home of Baylor Univer- 
sity, which has a successful record of 74 
years. Our public school system is one 
of the best in the State. We have an ex- 
cellent public library in addition to the 
library at Baylor University, which con- 
tains over 50,000 volumes and is open to 
the public.

WAXAHACHIE 

Written Especially for the Standard Blue Book 
BY THE WAXAHACHIE CHAMBER OP COMMERCE 



WAXAHACHIE, the home of Trinity 
University, is one of the best towns 
of its size in the State. It is the capital 
of Ellis County, the banner agricultural 
county of Texas and the biggest cotton 
growing county in the world. Popula- 
tion of Waxahachie is 10,000 and Ellis 
County 64,000. The extent of the com- 
mercial interests is indicated by the de- 
posits of its banks, which have been 
known to aggregate more than $7,000,- 
000.00. The city has a beautiful park, 
which is reached by the electric car line. 
There are about ten miles of paved 
streets now and a paving program of $1,- 
000,000.00 is under way. The entire city 
has cement sidewalks. 

The leading religious denominations 
have handsome edifices and large con- 
gregations. The public schools are among 
the very best in the State. A modern 
fireproof high school building has just 
been completed at a cost of $90,000.00. 
The entire city feels a just pride in its 
educational institutions. The Sims Li- 
brary, built, equipped and perpetually 
maintained by the generosity of the late 
Nicholas P. Sims, is a power for good in 
the city. Waxahachie offers splendid 
inducements to persons having children 
to educate. With Trinity University for 
those of college age and the ward schools 
and the high school for those of public 
school age, all the educational needs of 
prospective citizens are met. The splen- 
did electric street car system renders 



Trinity University, the ward schools, the 
high school and the churches accessible 
from all parts of the city. 

Waxahachie is located 30 miles south 
of Dallas, 40 miles southeast of Fort 
Worth and 70 miles north of Waco. It 
is served by the Houston and Texas Cen- 
tral; Missouri, Kansas and Texas; Trin- 
ity and Brazos Valley and the Texas 
Electric Railways. 

There are three large cotton oil mills; 
a successfully operated cotton mill; a 
compress; four cotton gins, one of which 
is the largest in the world; a nursery 
company which grows and ships millions 
of trees annually; a candy factory, serv- 
ing a large territory in a wholesale way; 
a number of large modern garages and 
other industrial institutions, all of which 
make Waxahachie prominent in the com- 
mercial world. The Texas Oil Products 
Company is now building a refinery to 
cost $650,000.00. 

A public sanitarium is maintained by 
an association of citizens and is loyally 
patronized by the citizens of the town 
and county. A campaign is now on to 
provide larger fireproof accommodations 
and sufficient funds will be raised to 
build, equip and endow a modern hos- 
pital in the near future. 

Waxahachie's modern hotel, the Rog- 
ers, is a source of pride to all citizens and 
under able management has taken its 
place among the best hotels in the State.

Sfacamiat teaman Bausbett^ 

DECEASED, FORMERLY OF HOUSTON. 

Jacamiah Seaman Daugherty was 
born in Sullivan County, Mo., August 
25th, 1849, the oldest of a family of 
five children. His mother and he held 
fort at home during the four years his 
father gave to the lost cause as Cap- 
tain in General Price's Army. 

He attended the Public Schools of 
his community and entered the Ken- 
tucky University in 1869, from which 
Institution he later received a Diploma. 
He came to Dallas County in the fall 
of 1872, and taught school until July, 
1873. 

On September 15th, 1873, he opened 
a land office in Dallas, Texas, and en- 
gaged in the land business. 

Individually, and as a member of the 
firm of Daugherty, Connellee and Am- 
merman, he located several million ac- 
res of land. 

They put down the first water well 
ever dug on the staked plains of Texas. 
In 1876 they caused the County Seat 
of Eastland County to be removed from 
Merriman to Eastland and laid out the 
present thriving oil town of that name. 
J. S. Daugherty was the father of the 
Business League idea in the United States. Served as Chairman of the first League 
in Dallas, Texas, from 1882 to 1888, giving his time and paying his part of the 
expense of the Committee. This Committee laid the foundation upon which Dal- 
las has grown. He organized, in 1882, the first Real Estate Association ever 
formed in Texas and was elected its Chairman. As Chairman of that Association 
he brought on the fight that caused the cattlemen of Texas to have to pay into 
the Public School Fund of the State $250,000.00 to $500,000.00 per annum, as 
rents for school lands they had previously grazed their cattle on for nothing. 

In 1898 he organized the Texas Bureau of Immigration, composed of a repre- 
sentative from each Senatorial District. He was elected Chairman of the Bureau 
and brought on the fight that resulted in the formation of Texas Railroad Com- 
mission. 

In 1893 the Trans-Mississippi Commercial Congress, by unanimous vote, asked 
him to prepare an address to the people of the United States on the Silver ques- 
tion, which he did, and they elected him orator of Silver Day, at the Chicago 
World's Fair. When Richard P. Bland made his argument in 1893, in behalf of 
the free coinage of silver, he asked and received unanimous consent of Congress 
to have Mr. Daugherty's address printed in the Congressional Record, as part of his 
argument on the question. 

At the Trans-Mississippi Congress he offered a resolution in the Good Roads Com- 
to provide a fund to protect their depositors against loss and was the first pub- 
lic advocate of that idea. 

Between the years 1890 and 1895 he represented Texas in the Good Roads Com- 
mittee of the United States, printing and distributing large quantities of Good 
Roads literature and holding Good Roads meetings all over the State. 

In 1909 he was Chairman of the Harris County Drainage Association and took 
an active part in the creation of the first Drainage District in Harris County. 

In 1910 he drafted resolutions, presented and secured their adoption by the 
Texas Industrial Congress, memorializing the United States Congress to locate a 
Naval Station, Navy Yard, Dry Docks, Arsenal and Ordnance Factory in Texas, the 
sight to be selected by a Naval Board. 

He took an initiative part in securing the construction of a deep water harbor 
at Galveston, Texas. 

During his fifty years of residence in the State, there has been no question agi- 
tated, pertaining to its general welfare, that did not receive his intelligent co-operation. 
On the 27th of September, 1919, Jacamiah Seaman Daugherty was instantly killed 
while crossing the public thoroughfare at Fulton, Kentucky, by an Illinois Central 
passenger train. His tragic death is sincerely mourned by all who knew of his 
genuine worth to the great State of his adoption. 

He leaves a widow, Margaret Cartmell Daugherty and three living children, 
Bryan Daugherty of New York City, Mrs. John T. Judd and Mrs. F. Fenwick Ken- 
dall of Houston, Texas.

six members. The fortieth anniversary will be 
celebrated soon, with a membership of more 
than six hundred. The object of the Associa- 
tion has always been to cultivate the science 
and art in dentistry, to elevate the professional 
character of the members and to promote among 
them the spirit of good-fellowship. 

Growing out of the State Society there have 
been many Local Societies organized in the dif- 
ferent cities in the State, which work in con- 
junction with the State Society. These Local 
Societies for the last few years have done won- 
derful work in an educational way, in working 
through the public schools and Mothers' Con- 
gress, educating the children along the line of 
propholaxis and mouth hygiene. 

The Texas State Dental Society is now work- 
ing in conjunction with the State Health Board, 
public nurses and Red Cross Nurses, in locali 
ties and rural districts where the public are 
lacking in education on the care of the mouth. 

During the war, organizations of the members 
of the State Society were formed in every 
County and District where men were being en- 
listed in the service, both Army and Marine. 
Dental services were given to the men who en- 
listed, free of charge, their mouths being put 
into a healthy condition and their teeth re- 
stored so that they would be more efficient 
for mastication. 

Over sixty of our men saw service in the 
army. Many of them served overseas with 
the American Expeditionary Forces. Our quota 
was always filled and a long waiting list of 



Dentists anxious to take their places when 
called. 

After a member has been in good standing 
in the Society for twenty-five years, he is then 
elected to membership in "The Order of Good- 
fellows," which is a distinction much coveted 
by all of our members. 

There is a great awakening in the profession 
in the line of propholaxis and oral hygienes, 
realizing more that clean teeth and a healthy 
mouth are essential to good health. 

The State Society this year branches out in 
a new field along the scientific side. We are 
bringing six of the best men in the United 
States in their respective branches, men who 
are expert in their line or work, coming from 
Colleges and Universities, giving an entire week 
to Post.Graduate work, thereby giving our 
members the advantage of taking this work 
at home instead of having to go to other cities 
to obtain the same work. This year one hun- 
dred and thirteen of our men attended the 
annual convention of the National Dental As- 
sociation, the largest delegation of any State 
in the Union, except the State in which the 
convention was held. 

Our Society this last year, through its mem- 
bers and friends of the profession, succeeded 
in getting laws passed which will effectively 
protect the public from the incompetent men 
who have heretofore found a fertile field in this 
State for their poor services rendered. 

We are hoping that the influence of our So- 
ciety will at some time in the near future, suc- 
ceed in establishing a Dental Department in our 
University. The following is a list of the Pres- 
idents of the Texas State Dental Society:

TEXAS' PART IN THE WORLD WAR 



BY CHARLES W. SCRUGGS 
State Adjutant, the American Legion 



A MERE glimpse into the inside history of 
the Empire State of the Union will show a 
citizenship nurtured in the strongest bonds of 
patriotism and loyalty. Successively acknowl- 
edging the supremacy of six flags and wresting 
her independence from each of the first five, 
then to go by her own free will under the 
Stars and Stripes, is a heritage approached by 
no other state and forms a noble history of 
which Texas is justly proud. 

It was this citizenship, nurtured in the cradle 
of Texas Liberty, Loyalty and Patriotism, that 
made an immediate response to the greatest 
call of all — the world conflict of 1917-1918. 
Standing fifth in point of population, she also 
stood fifth in the total number of men sent 
into the service; thus living up to her exact 
record. In actual figures we furnished 175,- 
344 mn for the Army, 22,522 for the Navy and 
Marine Corps, and 362 in the United States 
Coast Guards, a total of 198,228, or 4.16 per 
cent of the whole.* 

*The figures on the air service are not yet 
available, but our state sent many men into 
this enticing but dangerous branch, and Texas 
was awarded five aviation training camps — 
containing about three-fourths of all the air 
service of the Nation. 

Texas' response to the call for volunteers 
was immediate and spontaneous, and after the 
Selective Service Act went into effect 75 out 
of every 100 men examined were acceptd for 
service. A record unsurpassed and equalled 
only by eleven other states. Not counting the 
thousands of Texas men in other organizations 
and on special service, Texas wholly furnished 
two main divisions, trained, equipped and 
sent overseas. 

The 36th Division, composed of Texas Na- 
tional Guardsmen, was drafted into Federal 
service August 5th, 1917, after having been 
recruited to war strength by its own efforts. 
This division was trained at Camp Bowie, Tex., 
under the command of Major General E. St. 
John Greble. General Greble, however, was 
relieved of the command on the eve of the 
departure for France, being succeeded by Major 
General Smith. The bulk of this division 
reached France in July, 1918, and reached 
the front about October 1st, receiving its first 
shell fire at St. Mihiel, October 6-7. It re- 
mained a combat division to the end of the 
war. They captured 549 prisoners. The total 



casualties of this division amounted to 2,528. 
The artillery of this division was returned 
to the United States in March, 1919, the re- 
mainder of the division following in May. 

The 90th Division was organized at Camp 
Travis during the months of September and 
October, 1917, from National Army troops un- 
der the command of Major General Henry T. 
Allen. This division reached France in June, 
1918, and went into action during September 
of the same year, remaining a combat division 
for the remainder of the war. This division 
captured 1,875 prisoners. Total casualties 
amounted to 7,277. The 90th Division returned 
to the United States in June, 1919. 

Outside of these two divisions, thousands of 
Texans were in other organizations and did 
their duty as only real men can know or under- 
stand. Speaking of Texas troops, the com- 
manding general of the American Expeditionary 
Forces referred to them as men "who did what 
was to be expected when we remember the his- 
tory of their state, nurtured, as they are, in 
the cradle of loyalty and patriotism. I con- 
sider that the work of the 90th Division was 
not surpassed and the 36th was a very good 
second to it." Approximately 3,000 loyal 
Texans paid the supreme sacrifice in France 
in order that freedom and justice might not 
die. 

And after two years the war was over and 
the boys came home. They found that the 
reconstruction area had problems far more 
reaching than the problems of warfare. There 
are battles of peace as of war. Instinctively 
the men who were organized into the greatest 
fighting organization of our National history 
turned into an organization of their own, 
wherein they might work together toward the 
forwarding of the same principles of decent 
government for which they went to war in 
1917. 

For these reasons, therefore, the American 
Legion had its birth. Its work in the promot- 
ing of 100 per cent Americanism and kindred 
subjects speaks for itself. 

The future of the American Legion will be 
what its membership shall make it, and re- 
membering of what material this membership 
is composed, we may say that the future is 
very bright. On the experience of the past 
shall we build our plans for a larger and 
better America always.

Here's to the state of a single star 
That sends its gleaming message afar, 
To tell of strength and a courage rare, 
Of skies that are blue and a land that is fair 
Of heroes who lived for the common weal. 
Of heroes who died that we might feel 
Ourselves secure in our broad domain 
Won by a faith that was not in vain. 
Then here's to our state of the many flags 
Whose hope for the future never lags. 
Whose allegiance grows ever more loyal and 

true 
To her flag of the present — our red, white 

and blue.

THE STANDARD BLUE BOOK — TEXAS 




This page was patriotically given by a friend, Sidney A. Long, in memory of 
Corporal Thos. W. Wood — Gone West. 

ber of years ago, when it was located on Texas 
Avenue. 

He was a volunteer in the service, and in one 
of his letters home, he stated he was glad to 
learn that al lof his relatives in this war were 
volunteers also. 

In France he was with the 357th Ambulance 
Company, 90th Division, which work, obviously, 
was a very dangerous, although a most import- 
ant branch of the active service. In writing of 
the hazardous nature of his duties, he remarked 
concerning the part that fear plays while un- 
der fire on the battlefield: "We find oursel- 
ves in some mean places sometimes, and I have 
learned that only a fool doesn't know fear; 
however, if a man has a high and right regard 
for duty, fear doesn't bother but just enough 
to make him careful." 

In another letter we get a further insight in- 
to his nature, when he says "I find that the 
one thing that gives me most worry and con- 
cern is, driving under shrapnel, sometimes 
through gas, pitch dark, and over muddy, shell- 
torn roads, with patients in the ambulance. 
* * * Running into mustard gas with four 
to eight helpless patients in the ambulance, you 
have to put on your mask, put masks on all 
the patients, and then drive out of this hell." 
Safe at home by the side of our comfortable 
firesides, we can scarcely imagine the heroic 
grit and character necessary to carry out an 
operation of this nature. 

To those who knew him, it hardly seems pos- 
sible that a young man of Tom's build, gentle 
and sympathetic disposition should have been 
assigned to the particular line of duty in which 
he was engaged. But doubtless his official su- 
perior knew him best, and so, where the bul- 
lets from the machine guns were raking the 
field, shells on the land and in the air were 
bursting, and deadly, hell-born gases were 
hurled in waves and clouds across the shell- 
torn field, with that high conception of duty 
overcoming fear, referred to by him, there is 
where we find they placed him, only to die the 
death of the young hero that he was. 

He realized that he was an American, and 
could not honorably do otherwise. The incom- 
parable heroes of the Alamo could have done no 
more. What a beautiful, high and noble mem- 
ory, therefore, sealed with the crimson flow 
of his very life's blood, he has bequeathed to 
a loving father and mother, brother and sisters! 



IT was a sad message indeed that brought the 
* the news to loved ones and freds that Tom 
Wood had made the "supreme sacrifice" on 
November 5th, just six days before the armis- 
tice was signed. 

The noble, self-sacrificing motherhood of 
America is now realizing, as never before, the 
heart sorrow and the tragedy of war, as the 
names of the "dead on the field of honor," are 
reported daily. Who can fathom the depths of 
the heartaches and the soul throbs that are 
borne upward on the wings of prayer, implor- 
ing Divine st»ength and comfort in this dark 
hour of their sore trial? But this, we are 
told, is war, and now the dreaded day of tribu-

Cox, daughter of Col. R. L. Cox, deceased. Lieut. 
Thompson met his death on the battlefield, Sept. 13, 
1918, in the famous St. Mihiel drive in France. Just 



before his death, in writing to his devoted mother, he 
used this expression: "Your prayers are sweet and 
beautiful; they help me do my duty well and aid me in 
doing the things I should do." He also lauded his 
mother for accepting the war and his portion, in which 
he played such a conspicuous part, as a necessity, and 
for her patriotic and unselfish attilude shown in behalf 
of her country. He also made expressions as to his 
father and brother, showing his most tender and loving

without fear, doing his duty faithfully and heroically.

R. E. Thompson, an honored member of the bar, a native- 
born son of Texas, a graduate of the Texas State Uni- 
versity, an efficient prosecuting attorney, resigned his 
office, abandoned his chosen profession and enlisted in 
his country's cause; and 

'Whereas, Lieut. R. E. Thompson, famed for his courage, 
noted for his skill in handling a machine gun, fell on 
September 13th behind the German line in the famous 
St. Mihiel drive; and 

'Whereas, While his plane was burning he climbed out 
on the fusellage and spent the last moments fighting; 
therefore, be it 

'Resolved, That the House of Representatives unanimous- 
ly adopt this resolution in memory of R. E. Thompson 
for his valiant service, his courage, fidelity and the un- 
selfish life he gave for his country, and that we com- 
memorate the memory of Lieut. R. E. Thompson and 
share with his noble parents, who gave him to his coun- 
try, the loss of a noble, brave and courageous son."

grace and unconfined joy, the 
dignity of just victory, hap- 
piness, strength, purpose, bal- 
ance, poise — one glorious 
combine — a piece of frozen music. 

The base is of Texas granite, with 
four walks of red granite leading 
away from it so as to form a huge 
Red Cross, the statute rising from its 
center. On the pedestals are the 
figures of Pershing, Haig, Foch and 
Diaz, sentinels of humanity; sur- 
mounting the central pedestal four 
figures of womanhood, with out- 
stretched arms supporting a globe — 







the redeemed world — and topping 
the globe a lone, winged figure — the 
angel of eternal peace, one knee 
bended and in her hands the pieces 
of a broken sword. 

Friezes depict the four greatest 
battles of the world war, and above, 
bronze tablets bear the names of 
Texas heroes who gave their lives in 
the World War for liberty and 
humanity.

OSTEOPATHY 

BY THE TEXAS OSTEOPATHIC ASSOCIATION 

Written Especially for the Standard Blue Book 



T\H. ANDREW TAYLOR STILL, the 
founder of Osteopathy, conceived the 
idea that there must be some successful 
way of treating diseased conditions with- 
out drugs, and for seven or eight years 
he applied himself as a student of the 
human machine and as a student of the 
human body. 

A thorough study of the body develop- 
ed the important fact that the human 
body is a machine, and that within this 
machine, all parts being normal, it can 
carry on its activities without outside as- 
sistance with the exception of the raw 
material required. 

Early in the '90s he started to practice 
and was scoffed at by the old-line prac- 
titioners, but his success was so marvel- 
ous and so many cures were effected 
where people had become hopeless, that 
it was only a short time before he had 
firmly established Osteopathy and had 
shown the good results that it could 
produce. The growth of Osteopathy in 
the United States has been a marvel. 

We now have practicing in the United 
States something like 10,000 practition- 
ers. These men and women are required 
to be equally as well educated — if not 
more thoroughly — ^than the old-line prac- 
titioner. Their education consists of a 
course of study requiring four years and 
nine months each, in all of the funda- 
mental branches of the Healing Art. We 
are recognized by the law of every State 
and Territory in the United States, and 
our requirements are equal to those of 



the old school. The Science has built 
such a solid foundation and is so strong 
that there is no word of condemnation 
against it now by the thinking man or 
woman of today. 

This scientific treatment of disease has 
achieved such wonderful development in 
thirty years' time as no other branch of 
any cult has ever gained. The develop- 
nient has been along scientific lines. To- 
day there is existing in the United States 
ten of as fine colleges as there are in any 
system of teaching. Hospitals are being 
built and maintained by the Osteopaths. 
A General Research Institute is maintain- 
ed by general subscriptions from the Os- 
teopaths of the United States to carry on 
scientific work and scientific preparation 
to more thoroughly develop Osteopathy. 

During the epidemic of flue that cov- 
ered the world in 1918 and 1919 the Os- 
teopathic per centage of deaths from flu 
was only .47 of 1 per cent, which shows 
that Osteopathy is capable of taking care 
of all acute as well as chronic condi- 
tions. 

In the development of Osteopathy we 
have proven that diseased conditions are 
caused more often by some maladjust- 
ment of boning, muscular or ligamentus 
or nerve conditions, thereby reducing the 
vitality and resisting power of the tis- 
sues — a normal flow of blood to all parts 
meaning health. Under these conditions 
Osteopathy has grown to be a wonder- 
ful power in the United States and for- 
eign countries.

MUSICAL TEXAS 

BY CLYDE WHITLOCK. 
President, Texas Music Teachers' Association 



THE idea recently prevailed in some portions 
of the country that Texas is an untamed 
region where all the male population wears the 
regulation cowboy outfit (which is regulation 
only in the movies) and where the Indians still 
indulge in occasional outbreaks and where bears 
may be seen wandering down Main Street. An 
inevitable corollary of this impression was that 
Texas was necessarily quite undeveloped musi- 
cally. However, we may reasonably lay claim 
to being in a favorably advanced state musi- 
cally and in support of our claims we enumer- 
ate a few of our musical resources. 

There are within the state a large number of 
schools and colleges which maintain large music 
departments administered by teachers of the 
broadest experience and musicianship, many of 
whom are of national repute. The University of 
Texas has a Department of Music whose work is 
counted toward the academic degree in the uni- 
versity. The College of Indutsiral Arts, at Den- 
ton, a state school, has one of the largest fine 
arts departments in the country. 

The State Department of Education is showing 
an active interest in music in the public schools 
of the state. Only recently a committee was ap- 
pointed by the State Superintendent of Public 
Instruction, Miss Annie Webb Blanton, to revise 
all the present public school music courses and 
to provide a number of new ones for use in the 
high schools. The State Committee on Affilia- 
tion has officially ruled that music is a suitable 
subject for high school credit on the same basis 
as any other subject. Texas has a State Super- 
visor of Music. 

One of the sure signs of the progressiveness 
of the music teaching profession of a state, and 
indirectly of the entire musical activity of the 
state, is the presence of a State Music Teachers' 
Association. The Texas Music Teachers' Asso- 
ciation, ranking perhaps fifth in the country in 
membership, has accomplished much in unify- 
ing the interests of the profession and in estab- 
lishing the educational value of music study. It 
was through the efforts of the association that 
the State Department of Education has been in- 
terested in taking up seriously the status of mu- 
sic in the schools. The association has also ob- 
tained from the Association of Texas Colleges a 
statement of policy looking toward the recog- 
nition of high school music credits for college 
entrance. 

The Texas Federation of Music Clubs, affil- 
iated with the National Federation of Music 
Clubs, is an influential organization represent- 



ing some seventy of the most active music clubs 
of the state. Many of the leading teachers of 
the state have given scholarships to the federa- 
tion, which are awarded to deserving students. 
The Scholarship Committee has each year been 
able to secure scholarships from well-known 
teachers and schools in the national musical 
centers, which at-e awarded in open competition. 

One of the unmistakable evidences of an 
aroused public interest in music is the success- 
ful operation of a symphony orchestra. There 
are at least four orchestras of symphonic pro- 
portions in the state — the San Antonio Sym- 
phony Orchestra, conducted by Julien Paul 
Blitz; the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, Walter 
J. Fried, conductor; the University Symphony 
Orchestra, of Austin, Prof. Frank L. Reed, con- 
ductor; and the Waco Symphony Orchestra, 
Severin Frank, conductor. 

The largest cities of the state have concert 
seasons that would have done credit to cities 
thrice their size a few years ago. In addition 
to individual artists some of the most important 
symphonic and operatic organizations have an- 
nual appearances in Texas. The Chicago Opera 
Association has for some years appeared in Fort 
Worth and Houston in the course of its pre- 
season tour of only nine cities. Fort Worth be- 
ing probably the only city which has been in- 
cluded in every tour. It may be mentioned that 
Fort Worth and Houston heard Gali-Curci in 
opera before New York had that opportunity. 

One of the musical resources of the state is 
the only periodical published in the Southwest 
devoted exclusively to the interests of music. 
This is "The Musicale," published monthly in 
Dallas. This .iournal is the official organ of the 
Texas Music Teachers' Association, the Texas 
Federation of Music Clubs, the Texas Chapter 
of the American Guild of Organists, and the 
Texas Music Merchants' Association. 

During the fall of 1919 Dallas celebrated 
"Music Day," which proved to be one of the 
most potent agencies for publicity for music that 
has been devised. On that day all the musical 
interests of the city united for the exploitation 
of its musical resources by means of concerts, 
receptions, and demonstrations. New York 
later had a Music Week, and whether or not it 
was suggested by the Texas event, at least the 
chronological sequence gives us the right to 
assert that such was its inception. 

These conditions indicate progressive devel- 
opments and assure the accomplishment of sub- 
stantial results.

Washington Heights. Native of Indiana. Organized the 
San Antonio National Bank, July 5th, 1866, and served 
continuously as its president for more than forty-eight 
years, when he retired from active service. His gifts 
have been numerous, especially to education and much 
of his time has been devoted to opening up wider oppor- 
tunities for broader education in the State University 
and public schools. One of the last tributes in appre- 
ciation for his services to education was shown when 
San Antonio's newest and finest high school was made 
his namesake. For more than twenty-five years he 
served continuously as a member of the Board of Re- 
gents of the University of Texas. During this time he 
was the only Republican member of the Board of Regents 
and all his appointments to this body were conferred by 
Democratic Governors. San Antonio will remember Mr. 
Brackenridge for two things in particular: one being 
the gift to the city of what has been called the South's 
most beautiful playground, "Brackenridge Park." But 
more important than this is San Antonio's water supply, 
pronounced by physicians as being unexcelled any place 
in the United States. This was the result of Mr. Brack- 
enidge's efforts while at the head of the San Antonio 
Waterworks to give San Antonio the very best that na- 
ture could provide. He not only gave the city its first 
flowing wells while he was president of the San Antonio 
Waterworks but added numerous others even after he 
severed his connection with this company. In this way 
he has materially assisted farm and ranch by keeping 
creeks flowing while others were dry. He is a 32d 
degree Mason. Favorite recreations are hunting, yacht- 
ing, traveling and scientific research. Ancestry, Scotch- 
Irish.

Mr. F. W. Schuerenberg was born in Washington 
County, January 17, 1S62, in tlie little town of Ber- 
lin, where his father Capt. Frederick William Schu- 
erenberg had settled at the close of the war be- 
tween the states some years after he had fled from 
Germany in 1S4S to escape the dominion of the 
Prussian Autocrats. In 1866 he married Miss Ber- 
tha Eeichardt, daughter of E. Reichardt, a pioneer 
of Washington County, Texas. His widow survives 
him together with two daughters, Mesdames J. J. 
Marek and C. A. DeWare. At the death of his 
father he and his brother R. A. Schurenberg took 
active charge of the business which rapidly grew 
until it became one of the most important business 
concerns in Texas. The dominating characteristic 
of Mr. Schurenberg's personality was his intense and 
enthusiastic patriotism. He devoted himself with 
zeal and energy to patriotic activities and war 
work of all kinds, contributing liberally to every 
call for funds. He died March 1, 1919.

In Advertising 
Clientele Counts Most 

Into the homes of practically every business man, 
stockman, farmer and other citizens who possess pur- 
chasing power in a territory where advertising brings 
results, go the — 

San Antonio Express 

San Antonio Evening News 

Semi- Weekly Farm Express 

These three newspapers, all the product of the Express 
Publishing Company of San Antonio, cover a field for the 
national advertiser that has no counterpart in market 
productiveness in the United States. 

It is a territory larger than several average states; it 
extends from Central Texas far into the Republic of Mex- 
ico, north and south, and having a width of more than 
600 miles. 

In this vast region is a thriving, prosperous, go-ahead 
people who look to the columns of these newspapers for 
guidance in their purchases. 

Now is the opportune time for the national 
advertiser to reap a golden harvest by meet- 
ing the 'wants of these people upon w^hom the 
sun of unprecedented prosperity is shining. 

Remember, San Antonio is the largest city in Texas; 
the military capital of the Southwest; the metropolis of 
a great trade territory. Your advertising list will not be 
complete unless you include the 

San Antonio Express, the San 
Antonio Evening News and the 
Semi-Weekly Farm Express.

S SERVICE HOSPITAL 
ASSOCIATION OF TEXAS 



The Service Hospital Association is in successful oper- 
ation in this City; and while it may appear to be some- 
thing new in Health and Accident Insurance, many sim- 
ilar Organizations have been founded in other States in 
the Union, and without exception, are popular and 
prosperous. 

Members pay an annual fee of $12.00 in advance or 
an entrance fee of $3.00 and $1.00 per month. Thus a 
member saves $3.00 by paying in advance, for the year. 
Wives of members are admitted on payment of seventy- 
five cents per month. 

The Association, for this modest sum, provides for a 
member, in case of illness or accident, free medical and 
surgical attention, including medicines, surgical dress- 
ings, nurses, hospital, with private room and board while 
in the hospital, ambulance service and electrical treat- 
ments, in fact — covering all expense incurred during an 
illness or accident. 

We are equipped with a complete X-ray plant. 

Men, women and children, between the ages of ten 
and fifty-five years, are eligible to membership. 

Special rates to clubs, factories and stores.

The Secret of Higher Salaries 

The "secret" of higher salaries is no secret at all. You can earn almost 
any salary you wish — provided you do not stop with w^ishing. 



Here is the "secret." If you would BARN 
more you must be WORTH more. If you 
would GET more you must GIVE more. 
Your salary — your success — will be exactly 
in proportion to your worth — your efficiency. 
If you want to increase your income, you 
must increase your efficiency. There is no 
other way. 



Increasing the efficiency of young people — 
preparing them for positions in business and 
civil service as stenographers, secretaries, 
bookkeepers, accountants, office workers; 
positions paying from $60 to $125 a. month 
to start; positions which have served as the 
starting points for thousands and thousands 
of our most successful business men and wo- 
men — this is our life work. 



We can give you the same start we have given thousands of others. And you can attain 
the same heights if you will make the same start. Will you make that start NOW? Day 
and Night School the year 'round. Positions guaranteed. Call, write or phone for large 
illustrated Catalogue.

MADAME D'ANTON 
"The Dance of Cleopatra" 

Madame D'Anton came to San Antonio from the Vaudeville stage, 
where she had her own classical dancing act. 

During the world war she owned and conducted the attractive "Jar- 
din De Danse" (Garden of Dance) located on Houston Street. Hun- 
dreds of Army men were taught the art of ball room dancing by 
Madame D'Anton and her corps of competent teachers. 

Since the world war ended, Madame D'Anton has closed the "Gar- 
den of Dance" and is specializing on stage training. Many of her stu- 
dents are at present associated with the Movies, in leading roles, or in 
theatrical organizations of note. 

Feature Dances — Le Mouche De Feur, Danse Du Point, Scarf Dance, 
(Pas De Ballet, Chaminade) The Sculptor's Dream, and others. 

Students are coached for the Movies and trained for the Stage.

THE DAISY DETACHABLE FISH TAIL BIT 

The common Fish Tail Bit in use today is 
from three-fourths to one inch thick and from 
10 to 14 inches long. The tips get dull and 
wear off in a very short time and have to be 
sharpened and often the steel is crystalized, 
hence it breaks off like glass when they are put 
into a hole, therefore they cause a lot of trouble 
and many wells are ruined by the use of the 
bit,, as there are very few men who know how 
to temper the steel of a bit. The most expen- 
sive part of the bit, which is the shank, is 
thrown away. 

The Fish Tail Bit is the most important part 
used in drilling a well. The whole rig and 
and the men depend on the ordinary Fish Tail 
Bit, which is really a failure, as it gets dull in 
a very short time and has to be pulled out and 
sharpened and put back into the hole, which is 
the most expensive part of drilling. A lot of 
time is so wasted. 

The ordinary Fish Tail Bit will crystalize your 
pipe and practically ruin it so it is impossible to 
use for more than five or ten wells, but with the 
DAISY FISH TAIL BIT you can drill two or 
three times as many wells with the same pipe, 
which is a tremendous big saving. 

THE DAISY FISH TAIL BIT will paralyze 
the cost of drilling, as the tips are made of tool 
steel, the finest steel known, and as they wear 
off they are kept sharpened all the time. The 
tips of the DAISY FISH TAIL BIT are two and 
one-half inches thick, while the ordinary Fish 
Tail Bit is about one-half inch thick. With the 
DAISY FISH TAIL BIT you will not have to 
pull out of the hole but one time to your twen- 
ty if using the old Fish Tail Bit. 

Five Patents Pending 

We have a tremendous pressure of water right on the tip of the DAISY FISH TAIL 
BIT that keeps it tempered and pulverizes the dirt before it has a chance to stick to the tip. 
There is not a chance for the gumbo or any other formation to stick to the bit, which cause 
all the trouble of drilling a well. 

Hydraulic Well Cleaner and Packer Which Has Almost Human Possibilities. 

A screen or perforated pipe which is used in practically every oil field and which 
is to protect and hold back the sand from coming in and choking the well. As this 
oil comes along it always brings more sand with it, until finally the well is choked. With 
this marvelous and almost human cleaner, we go down on the inside of the well with steel 
brushes and scrape the walls of the screen or perforated pipe on the inside thoroughly and 
all paraffin or other substance that has stopped the well on the inside will naturally fall 
down to the bottom, as it is impossible for it to go elsewhere. 

At the bottom of the cleaner there is a valve that the minute it hits anything it imme- 
diately releases the tremendous pressure of water and cleans out everything from the inside. 
To clean strainer or perforated pipe on the outside, we have two expanding collars, 24 
inches apart, which expand and shut off the pressure of water or oil above and below the 
perforated pipe, making it the only opening in the whole string of pipe that water or oil 
can come through, and open every pore of the strainer or perforated pipe and drive away 
all sand or any other substance that has stopped the well. This creates a big cavity and 
opens every pore of the strata, hence, greatly increasing the flow of oil. 

When this part is cleaned we then release the expanding collars and drop them down, 
about 24 inches at a time, until strainer is cleaned from top to bottom.

THERE IS NO GOLD STAR on The 
Chronicle's service flag of 55 stars, 
but let this pro-American journal 
join the mothers and fathers of Texas in 
inscribing on the shaft of immortality this 
thought to the memory of their sons: 

There is no mystery about what we call 
Death. Physical death is only the laying 
down of one life to take up a new life. To 
die bravely, in battle for one's country, is 
to begin nobly the life eternal.
